    I've made a 9:15 a.m. reservation at Crystal Palace. What is the earliest time we can enter the park, in order to arrive timely at the restaurant?

    Hi Crystal,

    You'll want to arrive at Magic Kingdom Park around 8:45am for  9:15am dining time to allow time to check in and go through bag check. In my experience, they will allow you entry into the park approximately 20 minutes prior to your dining time. When the Advanced Dining Reservation is after park opening, they may ask you to wait for official opening. You can check in at the early entry area when you arrive. The Cast Member there will give you your entry time.

    Please come back and see us again real soon, Crystal.

    Have a magical day,
