Enough time? Crystal Palace breakfast -> GF spa

We have a reservation for breakfast at Crystal Palace at 8:10am. Two members of our large party have spa appointments at the Grand Floridian at 10am. Will this be too tight for them to make their spa appointments? They were told to arrive around 9:30am. I made the dining reservation with wishful thinking, but now I'm looking at this more realistically and thinking this will not be possible in terms of timing.

We really want to do CP breakfast one day during our trip as a whole group. Our options were for this day with the possible spa conflicts, or for the last morning of our trip. I'd prefer to keep it on this day for scheduling purposes, but now I'm thinking it's going to be stressful for the spa-people because they will have to hurry up and eat and then run back out & catch a boat or monorail to GF. Thoughts?

Yup.

Although, they would likely make it, even if it were a bit after that suggested 9:30 "call time,"
and closer to 10AM.

(I figure that half-hour early call time is designed-in to make sure guests will actually be
closer to "on time," as most don't know
how to judge travel time between WDW locations.)

You are assuming you will be seated on time. Our last meal at CP, in January when it's "slow", we were seated 20 minutes past our ADR. Planning anything less than 90 minutes for the meal is a risk, then you have to add the time it's going to take to jump on the monorail, go to CR, then Poly then get off at GF, walk to the spa. The boat will mean a longer walk.

They need to be on time at the spa. They have to check in, be escorted to the locker rooms, change prior to their treatments starting. It's going to take the allotted time as they are going to have several people checking in. They are pretty rigid with appointments so if they are late, it's going to come out of their treatment time.

Thanks for all the advice - I think I'll reschedule our breakfast for another day.
