    We will be visiting MK 3/8 and have an 8:05am Crystal Palace ADR. What time can we enter the park and will there be memory maker photographers available before the park officially opens?

    Hi Nicole,

    The Crystal Palace is one of my favorite Character Dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort! Breakfast  with Winnie the Pooh and his pals is such a magical way to start the day! My kids love the "All-You-Care-To -Enjoy" Breakfast buffet and enjoy parading around the Restaurant with the Characters. Be sure to get a big "flouncy pouncy" hug from my bouncy friend Tigger! 

    I suggest arriving at Magic Kingdom Park 20 to 30 minutes prior to your reservation time. Since the Park will not yet be open to the public you'll have the opportunity to enjoy Main Street, U.S.A. without the usual crowds. Although there is no guarantee, PhotoPass Photographers have been available for photo opportunities in front of Cinderella Castle. There are no PhotoPass Photographers at The Crystal Palace. 

    Make sure you have your Advanced Dining Reservation confirmation number on hand to show the Cast Member at the MagicBand touch point entrance to the Park. 

    Enjoy Your Magical Visit,
