    835am ADR for Crystal Palace. Later than I wanted but still in park before opening. Debating canceling for fear of putting us too far behind on day. Are we further ahead entering park at rope drop and eating outside park earlier?

    Hi Michelle:

    In my experience, breakfast at Crystal Palace usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour, maybe a bit less if you really rush through. Once done with your meal, you will already be in the Park and in great position to hit some attractions before the Park begins to fill for the day.  However, it's extremely likely that others will already be in the Park by the time you are finished with your meal.  So if it's very important to you to hit the most rides, then you likely will be "further ahead" (by a bit) if cancel your 8:35 ADR.  That being said, Crystal Palace is a wonderful experience, especially with kids.  It will be up to you to prioritize rides over breakfast experience, but if both are important to you, then I would recommend keeping your reservation since it won't put you too far behind.  However, if seeing the most of the Park and rides is extremely important to you, then you should consider cancelling breakfast and grabbing food on the go.

    Enjoy your vacation.
