    This will be our 2nd trip to wdw, id like to enter Magic Kingdom before it opens to the public. What restaurants beside Crystal Palace are open around the 8am breakfast time in order to enter Magic Kingdom early. Thanks!

    Hi, Rachel! My family loves to have breakfast in Magic Kingdom before the park opens for two reasons: snapping a practically perfect family picture in front of Cinderella Castle with no crowd joining our picture, and being ahead of the crowd when the park opens. There is nothing better than whistling while we ride 7 Dwarfs Mine Train before many others even make it down Main Street, U.S.A.

    Besides Crystal Palace, there are now two other Magic Kingdom Restaurants that begin serving breakfast at 8 o'clock. Cinderella's Royal Table is a long-standing Guest favorite. While the caramel apple stuffed french toast is divine, the real draw here is meeting Cinderella and her Princess friends. Guests on the Disney Dining Plan who enjoy a royal meal here will need to utilize two table-service meal credits.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant just recently began breakfast service. While I have not had a chance to ask the dishes about the food here, several of my friends tell me the croissant doughnut is quite delicious. Guests who are on the Disney Dining Plan can use one quick-service credit at this location.

    The Crystal Palace does continue to serve Pooh's puffed french toast and other favorites at 8 o'clock. Meals at this beautiful location can be purchased with one table-service Disney Dining Plan credit. While I love hopping around with Tigger here, we always seem to miss Eeyore as we usually leave early for park opening. That just makes me blue ...

    Note that while these restaurants regularly begin breakfast service at 8:00 a.m., sometimes Magic Kingdom does have a regular park opening at that time or earlier, particularly during busy periods. If Magic Kingdom does adjust park hours on the day you plan to have breakfast, then you will need to decide if that early breakfast still holds its appeal since it will no longer be before park opening.

    I hope you have a magical day, Rachel!
