    We have a reservation for 8am at Crystal Palace. Magic Kingdom is scheduled to open at 8am that day. Does that mean they allow all guests to enter Main Street at 7am? So, there is no early entry park for guests with an early dining reservation?

    Hi Rachel, thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    What a great way to start your day - breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and Friends at The Crystal Palace! This is one of my favorite breakfast locations.  Not only is the food plentiful and delicious, I love the group of characters that stop by your table as you enjoy breakfast.

    Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests allows guests to enjoy the park 30 minutes prior to the park opening for non-resort guests.  For your specific date, if the park opens at 8:00 am, Early Entry will begin at 7:30 am.  You may have enough time to take advantage of one or two attractions during the Early Entry timeframe but you don't want to be late for your breakfast.  Personally, I would enjoy my walk down Main Street, U.S.A. and take some excellent pictures in front of Cinderella Castle while the crowds are lower and check-in at the podium for breakfast about 15 minutes prior to my reservation.

    If Early Entry and the early morning hours are important to you to optimize your park time, you might want to check for a later breakfast reservation.  I have done this a few times as breakfast is currently available until 10:45 am so that is certainly an option for you.

    Rachel, you will be visiting Walt Disney World when Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is underway.  If your budget allows, attending this special event is also a great way to maximize your park time as tickets for the parties are limited.  The parties are also tons of fun!

    Have a magical vacation and I hope you enjoy your breakfast at The Crystal Palace!
