    I have managed to book breakfast at the Crystal Palace on Christmas Day morning - yay!!! Our reservation is 8.45 (couldn't get earlier), what time would you recommend arriving at MK, I know it will be busy!

    Congratulations, Vicki!

    Christmas breakfast at The Crystal Palace is sure to be magical! Hurray!

    I agree that Magic Kingdom is sure to be crowded that day, and Guests are encouraged to arrive at dining locations early anyway. As such, I would be at Magic Kingdom's gates between 8 and 8:15. There will be a special line for Guests with breakfast reservations in the park, early tours, etc., so look for the Cast Members who are allowing such Guests early entry.

    By arriving early, you'll be able to enjoy a leisurely walk up Main Street, U.S.A., and can have a fantastic Christmas picture taken in front of Cinderella Castle when the streets will be practically empty!

    Then, check-in at the restaurant and enjoy the holiday music and decorations as you await your fabulous breakfast! (Be sure to try Pooh's Puffed French Toast with Cinnamon Sugar; I know it's in the kids' buffet area, but I tried one two weeks ago, and can't stop thinking about it! YUM!)

    Enjoy your fabulous holiday visit to Walt Disney World! Send more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
