    We have reservations at Crystal Palace at 8:20am. They suggest we get there 20 minutes before reservation. MK doesn't open til 9am that day. How early can be get into the park? I would like to take some photos before breakfast without a big crowd.

    Hi Maggie - those with advance dining reservations are able to get into the parks earlier.  Reservations are checked at the turnstiles, and although the park is still closed, you'll be able to get to the Crystal Palace.  Disney transportation also runs early.

    They will let you in with enough time to get to your reservation, but they won't allow you to enter too early.  I've seen visitors try to get into the park an hour before their reservation (while the park was still closed) and were not permitted to enter the park. 

    Keep in mind that much of the park will be roped off, so you'll really only be able to walk to the Crystal Palace.

    Have a great vacation!
