    i made an online reservation for crystal palace for 8:50am. that day park opens at 9am. how early can i arrive for my reservations? Idont have a dining plan, how/when will i be charged? how do they know at the park that i have a reservation when i arrive?

    Hi Nathalie!

    It's recommended that you arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your reservation time, but I like to give myself at least a half an hour.  There will be a designated gate for you to enter with a sign that specifies that it's for character dining.  A Cast Member will be there to greet you with a list of names that the reservations are under.  Simply give them the name the reservation was booked under and they will direct on your way to the Crystal Palace.  It's quite a treat getting into the park before it opens!  You will receive a bill at your table at the end of your meal at which point you will pay your server.

    Have a magical day!
