    Have a breakfast reservation at the Crystal Palace at 8:20am but the park doesn't open until 9am, how do you get to the restuarant before the entrance gates open? Thanks.

    All four theme parks have character breakfast seatings before the park opens. If you have a reservation for one of those seatings, it is very easy to get into the park for your meal.

    There will be a special park entrance turnstile open for guests with early breakfast reservations. It varies from park to park, but the special entrance line is most often on one of the far ends of the row of turnstiles. There will be sign posted that says something like "Character Breakfast Entrance." If you don't see it right away, just ask any cast member. As you get to the breakfast entrance line, there will be a person with a clipboard checking to make sure that guests entering here do have reservations. Just give them your name and they will check you off the list. It is a good idea to also have your confirmation number with you in case there are any problems.

    One huge bonus of a pre-opening meal is that the park is usually MUCH less crowded than normal when you're walking to your breakfast. This is a wonderful opportunity to snap some photos of your family on Main Street without zillions of other guests in the background.

    Enjoy your stay at Walt Disney World.
