    Hi, we have an 8.30am reservation for the Crystal Palace MK on the 6th April (9 people), a day without extra magic hours, we are reliant on the Disney transportation system taking us from Port Orleans Riverside, will we make it in time? thanks

    Hi, Emily!

    The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom Park is a great choice for breakfast.  The food is delicious, the setting is beautiful, and you will love visiting with Winnie the Pooh and his friends.  I think you also made a great choice in booking your breakfast reservation prior to park opening.  On your way into Magic Kingdom Park for your breakfast, be sure to take some pictures in front of Cinderella Castle.  There will be very few other guests in the park this early, so you should be able to capture some amazing photos.

    I checked the Walt Disney World website, and Magic Kingdom Park is listed as opening at 9:00 a.m. on the date of your reservation at the Crystal Palace.  The Walt Disney World Resort bus transportation begins running 45 minutes prior to park opening.  I think even if you were to catch the very first bus leaving from Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, you would not have enough time to arrive at Magic Kingdom Park and make your way to the Crystal Palace before your reservation time.  I would recommend you utilize the Minnie Van Service instead.

    By using the Lyft app on your phone, you can request and pay for a Minnie Van vehicle, and a friendly Cast Member will arrive in an adorable polka dot car to drive you anywhere on Walt Disney World property.  The Minnie Van service begins operating daily at 6:30 a.m., so it is the perfect solution to get you to those early morning breakfast reservations.  Each Minnie Van vehicle can accommodate up to six people, so your party of nine will need to request two Minnie Vans. 

    Enjoy your breakfast at the Crystal Palace!
