Should I keep ADR when MK opens at 8 a.m.

Does it make sense to keep a 8:35 reservation at Crystal Palace when the park opens at 8 as it is. I had hoped it was a 9 o'clock opening but apparently not.

This is for the first day of our first trip, so I thought it would be a fun way to kick it off.

Thoughts?

I wouldn't keep it. That's some prime touring time you'll be giving up. If you want a CP meal as part of your first day, I'd try to get a late breakfast or early lunch ADR.

I wouldn't keep it. Most will arrive at the park a little after 9am which means that you have extra time with fewer people which little wait for most rides. I would schedule CP, if possible, around 10am when it gets busier in the park.

I would change it to one of the later breakfast times, so more of a brunch when you are ready for a break.
