    Our reservation for crystal palace is at 8:40 am but MK doesn't open until nine. I'm so confused. There are no magic hours that morning I've checked three times.

    Hello Ingrid!
    I have great news! Since you have a dining reservation that occurs before the typical park opening time you will have the opportunity to enter the park early. There is a lot of activity going on with people arriving at the park, going through security, etc. So, I recommend planning on arriving at the  front gate by 8:15 or so. Look for the dining check-in touch point and you will be granted entry once the Cast Member has confirmed your reservation. Now comes one of the best parts: a nearly empty Main Street, U.S.A.! Make sure and snap some photos of your family in front of the castle before meeting up with Pooh and the gang!

    Say "hi!" to Tigger for me!
