What do I mean by an “elusive restaurant?” I mean a place that you want to try and you make reservations on multiple different occasions, but can never seem to actually make it there.
I have an elusive Disney restaurant, the Crystal Palace. In all the years that I have been going to Disney World I have always, always wanted to eat breakfast at the Crystal Palace. I love the look of it and meeting the Winnie the Pooh characters would be so much fun. However, at this point, I feel like I am not meant to eat there.
Have you ever seen Gone in Sixty Seconds? Using a term from that movie, the Crystal Palace would be my unicorn. We have made reservations for the Crystal Palace for several of our trips, but have always ended up canceling for one reason or another. Each time we have to cancel I’m disappointed, but I’m hoping that I can remedy this during the next trip.
My plan is to make early breakfast reservations, so I can get a picture in front of the castle with little to no people in the background. There’s a good tip for those that don’t know about early breakfast reservations. Some restaurants in the Magic Kingdom offer early breakfast reservations, usually starting around 8 a.m. If you have the early reservations you are able to get in the park before it opens and take pictures in a nearly empty park. Plus, you will already be in the park when it opens, so you can get in line for rides before everyone else can make it to the back of the park. Lots of bonuses come with early breakfast reservations!
So, do you have a restaurant that you can’t seem to make it to, but really want to try? Share in the comments below! I’m curious which restaurant is your unicorn.
