    Hi, We have an 8:05 am reservation at Crystal Palace. I am trying to find out the best way to arrive on time. We will be staying at Coronado Springs, and we will have our car with us. Should we drive or take the bus?

    Hello, Delilah, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we're so glad you're here.

    The Crystal Palace restaurant at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park is one of my favorite venues to meet Winnie the Pooh and Friends, have your autograph book and camera ready! I would recommend driving your car and parking which is complimentary for you since you are a Disney Resort hotel Guest. Please remember to display your Parking Pass on the dashboard of your vehicle so you may be granted free access to the parking area. At the end of the day, having your vehicle waiting for you will be a nice comfy ride back to your Disney Resort hotel.

    Delilah, please plan on arriving at The Crystal Palace about 10-15 minutes in advance of your reservation, where upon entry into Disney's Magic Kingdom Park you may be in time for the early morning 'Rope Drop' which is a fun and engaging way to begin your day. 

    Customize and control your vacation before and during your visit through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for Advanced Dining Reservations, selecting FastPass+ experiences and personalizing MagicBands.

    Expedite your check-in on arrival day with Disney's Online Resort Check-In so you can get to your fun a lot faster!

    May I suggest you write down or photograph your parking row in order to make it easier to find your car at the end of the day.

    I hope this information is helpful, Delilah and would be pleased to assist you with your vacation planning in the near future.

    Best Disney Wishes~
