    Hi, we`re almost there!! Arriving next saturday, we will be staying outgrounds and have reservations for Cinderella`s Royal Table on wednesday 9 at 9 am. How much time woud we need while we park our car and get to MK and then to the castle?

    Hi Piedad!

    You're trip is literally around the corner! Are you too excited to sleep yet?

    You're going to love dining at Cinderella's Royal Table (CRT)!  Its a fabulous way to start a magical day!

    I would plan to arrive at the Magic Kingdom parking lot at least 1 hour 15 minutes prior to your check-in time at CRT.  If your reservation is at 9:00 a.m., you'll need to check-in at 8:45 a.m. so plan to arrive no later than 7:30 a.m.  That should give you time to park and take the tram to the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC).  From TTC, you'll have the option of taking the Monorail or Ferry Boat over to the Magic Kingdom. 

    Once you reach the Magic Kingdom, you'll have to go through security.  The Magic Kingdom opens at 9:00 a.m. on October 9, 2013 so there will likely be a lot of Guests making their way through security about the same time. Since you'll need to enter the Magic Kingdom before it officially opens, look for the entrance for Dining Reservations.  I'd have my confirmation number handy just in case. 

    It will take you 5 - 10 minutes depending on how fast you walk to make your way down Main Street USA to Cinderella Castle for CRT.  We like to go a few minutes early and enjoy Main Street with fewer people and take some pictures along the way.  I don't like to feel rushed and always allow myself a little extra time. And honestly, its a great feeling having the Magic Kingdom sort-of to yourself before they open the main gates, so go and enjoy it.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
