    We have a reservation at the crystal palace at 8:10am. Since this is before the park opens...How do we get there? I read that the buses and monorail start running an hour before the park opens.

    Hi, Leah! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for stopping by with your question. When my daughters were tiny princesses, we frequently planned pre-park opening breakfasts. This was a great way to enjoy a delicious start to our day and hang out with some fantastic Disney friends! The Crystal Palace is one of our favorite choices for breakfast when we have an early morning rumbly in our tumbly. I know the sign says "Kids Corner," but be sure to make a stop in that section for some of Pooh's Puffed French Toast. My goodness, I could go for that delight right about now!

    On the morning of your early breakfast, head out to your resort's bus stop and one should be by soon for your ride to Magic Kingdom Park. While the buses do not begin regular service until about 45 minutes to an hour before park opening, they actually do have early trips through the resorts for guests needing transportation to breakfasts and tours. In my experience, I have hopped aboard the Disney transportation as early as 6:45 a.m. If you are driving to Magic Kingdom Park, the Resort Monorail line usually has a very early start to its day, so you should have no trouble zipping around Seven Seas Lagoon on the Highway in the Sky. Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time to go through security, which can have a bit of a line early in the morning. When you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, look for the entrances to the left designated for guests with early morning reservations. The Cast Member will check your name and confirmation number and give you directions on how to proceed through to park to reach The Crystal Palace.

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
