    We have a reservation at crystal Palace for 8.30am. We wanted it earlier as I want to get up Main Street when it's pretty empty for photographs. Will be ok to get into the park at 8am or will they make us wait until closer to our reservation time? T

    Hi Zoe!

    I absolutely love dining at Crystal Palace for breakfast!  You have a great reservation time if park opening is at 9:00 that morning.  Being able to stroll to the restaurant along Main Street USA with very few Guests around you makes a person feel like the Magic Kingdom is their own private world.

    You shouldn't have any problem entering at 8:00 am or very close to it if you have an 8:30 am reservation.  You will want to arrive 10-15 minutes early for advanced dining reservations and you also need to allot travel time from the main entrance to the restaurant.  Therefore 20-30 minutes prior to your reservation is reasonable.  I have arrived to the Magic Kingdom breakfast entrance 30 minutes prior to my reservations at Crystal Palace and have been admitted once the Cast Member verified my reservation.

    Thank you for your question Zoe.  If we can help answer any more Disney vacation planning questions, be sure to come back and see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  We love to help!
