    Hi! I have a reservation at crystal palace @ 8:30 and the park doesn't open til 9. 1) will the busses be running early enough to get us there? And 2) will the just take my word for it at the entrance to the park and just let me in that early? Thanks!

    Hi, Julianne! You can inquire with Guest Services at your Resort about what time to expect the first bus of the day to the Magic Kingdom, but as a general rule, it's an hour prior to park opening.  When you arrive at the gates, just look for the designated spot that is allowing early entry. It should have clear signage, but if you don't see it, ask a Cast Member to point you in the right direction.  Make sure that you have access to your confirmation number for your Advance Dining Reservation in case it is needed to verify early entry.  There is nothing like being in the theme parks before they open to get a couple of fabulous pictures without other Guests in the background. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
