    We have a reservation at the Crystal palace for 8:30am on Saturday Sept. 16 Magic Kingdom does not open until 9:00am Will we be let in to make our reservation, also staying at Wilderness lodge. Will transfer be running or will we need to find another way?

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! Breakfast at The Crystal Palace is a great way to begin your day at Magic Kingdom Park. You will definitely be able to enter the park before official park opening in order to make your Advanced Dining Reservation.

    I have previously dined in the theme parks before official park opening and have always been able to utilize Disney's complimentary transportation when traveling to the park. I recommend checking with the Front Desk of Disney's Wilderness Lodge the night before your breakfast to see if water launch (water taxi) or bus transportation will be running for early Advanced Dining Reservations. One of the two transportation options should be available for Guests with early Advanced Dining Reservations at Magic Kingdom Park.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again. Best wishes for a magical trip, Kelly!

    Happy Travels,
