    Staying off-site at Windsor Hills in Jan. How do we get to MK in time to make 8:15 reservations at Crystal Palace? How would we get to see the opening ceremony on a different day?

    Hi, April!  The parking lot will be open in time for you to get to your reservation at the Crystal Palace, so you can head right to the Magic Kingdom parking.  You'll want to give yourself at least a half an hour from the time you've parked your car to get to the restaurant. 

    The opening ceremony takes place at normal opening time, not during the extra magic hours opening, so you just have to make sure you are at the theme park when the gates open.  Again, you'll find the parking lots are open in plenty of time, so make sure to allow enough time to park and get through the turnstile.

    Have a wonderful visit!
