    Hi! We have a dining reservation at 8:35 am at Crystal Palace in the MK, for the morning we arrive, so we will not have checked-in at our hotel yet. What would be the best way to get to the park and be able to be there on time for the reservation?

    Hi, Jeffrey!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I have been in your place before! The last time I had an early reservation at the start of a visit to Walt Disney World Resort, I decided to arrive SUPER early. I knew our hotel wouldn't have our room ready but we checked in around 6 AM. That way, we were certain we were in the system and we could drive to the theme park without feeling pressed for time. Standard parking is complimentary for anyone staying at a hotel on Disney's property. 

    Breakfast at the Crystal Palace is SO much fun. My family has a memory of getting to the restaurant early while Magic Kingdom Park was almost completely empty. We loved our view from the restaurant while we met Winnie the Pooh and friends!

    I know you're in for an unforgettable vacation! Let me know if I can help answer any additional questions before your arrival!
