    We could only get a reservation for 8:20 am at The Crystal Place for August 31, with the park opening at 9:00. Seeing as it's a buffet, does that give us enough time to eat and be ready for attractions by 9:00?

    Hello, Mark! I would like to welcome you to the Moms Panel! I am sure that you should be able to finish your meal by 9:00 a.m. However, I am thinking that you selected this restaurant because of your interest in character dining. Winnie the Pooh and Friends will be making their way to your table for pictures and autographs. You will need to allow approximately an hour in order for all the characters to make their way to your table. They do not show-up at your table all at once. It may be a bit longer if the restaurant is filled with many guests. Now you certainly do not need to wait around for all the characters, but I think it would be well worth the memories. Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel. Please join us again real soon should any new questions or concerns pop-up. We are always ready to help our guests plan the vacation of a lifetime. May your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation be filled with many new and MAGICAL memories. ~Have a MAGIAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"~!
