    If we secure a breakfast reservation before the park opens, can we walk around after we eat if the park is still closed technically to the public?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kim!

    There are some fabulous early morning breakfast opportunities in the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. Now I'm curious where you'll be dining during your upcoming trip. Are you headed to The Crystal Palace to see Winnie the Pooh and his friends in Magic Kingdom Park? Or perhaps you're looking to spend quality time with some princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. If you have preschoolers in your group, Disney Junior Play Play 'n Dine at Disney's Hollywood Studios' Hollywood & Vine is a fabulous choice for breakfast. I'd love to hear more about your plans.

    One of the best reasons to schedule an early morning breakfast reservation is that you get to explore the Disney theme parks a bit before they are populated with thousands of people. Think of the amazing crowd-free photos you could get if you have early access to the parks. While the rides and attractions will not be operational until the official opening time, there is so much to see and enjoy. 

    Be sure to take your time and enjoy your breakfast, but if additional time remains to explore before the park's official opening time, savor every moment! 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
