    I have ADR at the GF 1900 Park Fare at 6pm, but MNSSHP starts at 7PM, opening night!!! I have purchased tickets to the Halloween Party and I dont want to miss either of them. Should I change my dining reservation or will i make the opening of the party?

    Your meal at the Grand Floridian will last approximately one hour. You're in a good position to get to the Magic Kingdom quickly - just one stop away on the monorail, but it will take 15 minutes or so to get there and get into the park. You would likely miss the very first few minutes of the party, but you still would have plenty of time to enjoy the fun.

    If you really want to be there at exactly 7:00 you have a couple of options:

    1. Try to change your reservation time to earlier, or cancel it.
    2. Show up early for your 6:00 reservation and hope they seat you earlier.
    3. Eat quickly.

    I personally would try to change the reservation. If this is not possible, i would go for option #2 and show up at 1900 Park Fare at about 5:20. Obviously there are no guarantees, but in my opinion there is a decent shot that you would be seated early.
