    We have a reservation for the character breakfast at the Crystal Palace at 8:40 but the park doesn't open until 9:00. How will we be able to get to the restaurant in time for our reservation?

    Hi Carrie,

    Breakfast at Crystal Palace is a great way to start your day in The Magic Kingdom! 

    You'll be able to enter the park, prior to opening, in order to dine at Crystal Palace.  When you arrive at the front gate, you'll see a queue for guests with character dining reservations.  You'll simply give your name to the cast member, and they will direct you to the restaurant.  This is also a great time to stop for a moment and take a picture on Main Street as there will be very few guests around at that time.

    If you are a resort guest, buses to the park usually start running about an hour prior to opening.  You'll definitely want to make sure you are on the 8:00 a.m. bus.  Also, check with the front desk the night before your reservation; it's possible that there will be an earlier bus for character dining.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
