    Okay, never have been to a character dining before. If you make a character dining reservation at the Crystal Palace at, lets say, 8:05am, how do you get into the park if Magic Kingdom doesn't open until 9am? Do you just show up at the gate and ????????

    Hi Kris!
    For any character dining that tkes place prior to park opening, you simply approach the Cast Members at the Main Entrance (there is usually a sign) and let them know you have a reservation. They will let you through and you can proceed to Crystal palace. Be sure to get a family photo on a nearly empty Main Street USA or in front of Cinderella Castle...this is as empty as you will ever see the park.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical vacation!! :)
