TIPS LOGOCalling all early birds!

If you and your family or party enjoy waking up early for a nice meal before taking on the parks for the day, the Magic Kingdom offers a great opportunity to enter the park up to an hour before it is open to the public.

This time of year, Magic Kingdom opens at 9:00 a.m. but you may book reservations for breakfast at The Crystal Palace or CRTCinderella’s Royal Table starting at 8:05 a.m. The earlier the time, the harder it may be to book a reservation so make sure to call way in advance!

(Bonus: This is a great chance to take pictures of Magic Kingdom while it is empty!)

How many of you have had breakfast before the regular opening hours of Magic Kingdom? Were you able to get photos of the park while it was empty?

    Several years ago, our family ate breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table before park hours, and were able to take pictures of Main Street and the Castle with no one else (but a couple cast members) in the shots. It was really quite an experience to be standing there with an unobstructed view of everything. It was rather dreamlike.

    I was lucky enough to have breakfast at the Crystal Palace and finish with time to relax outside of the ice cream parlor while waiting for the park to open. It was very very very magical!!!

    I make it a habit to go to Crystal Palace before park opening! Always get a great shot in front of the castle with no crowds! and it’s fun just to smell the clean air and feel like you are there alone:)

    I took advantage of making early reservations before the park was open. My girls were 4 and 5 at the time and were wearing their princess hats and got many beautiful pictures of just them walking on Main St. up to the castle. We literally were the only ones on Main Street.
