    if you have a reservation for a breakfast with characters (like the crystal palace) and your reservation is for the 8 am , what happens if the park opens at 9 am? Do you have to wait or you can enter in the park early?

    Hi Paola,

    Crystal Palace is one of my favorite places for a character breakfast - great choice!  If your reservation is at 8:00, you'll want to arrive at the Magic Kingdom by 7:45.  The cast members at the front gate of the park will have your name on a list of reservations and will escort you to the restaurant.

    You'll have plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely meal and meet the characters.  It usually takes about an hour for all of the characters to make it to your table.  If you finish before 9:00, you can leave the restaurant and walk down Main Street.  Use that opportunity to get some great photos in front of the Castle.  You will not be permitted to enter the rest of the park until the official rope drop.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
