    Someone told me that we can make breakfast reservations for The Crystal Palace before the park opens. I was also told that we would be able to take pictures while the park is empty. Is this possible?

    Good morning, Tammy! I know you’ll be smiling more than Pooh with his honeypot when you head to breakfast in Magic Kingdom Park. 

    Depending on when your breakfast reservation is, you may enter the park early. On a day when the park opens at 9am, guests may enter as early as 8am to enjoy a short while on Main Street, U.S.A. as well as the new welcome show, “Let the Magic Begin” on Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage about 10 minutes before the park officially opens.

    While you won’t be able to venture off to any “lands,” for attractions quite yet, you will be able to grab a cup of coffee from the Main Street Bakery, peruse the wares in the Emporium, and take those coveted photos of your family and the Castle with as little crowd as possible. If you’re one of the few folks through the tunnel right as the clock strikes 8am (or an hour before park opening, depending on the day), you’ll get the most “empty” photos possible.

    Be sure to smile for the birdie, and say hello to Eeyore for me! ~Lindsey
