    Will be arriving in DW around 2pm on 3/3 at POP. Would like to take 4yr old to see Voyage of Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast at HS? The park closes at 7 that day. Would we have enough time after checking in at hotel and then getting to the park?

    Hi Cortney!

    I love how ambitious you are!
    Wanting to get straight to the park and see a few GREAT attractions right away upon arrival! I love it!

    You shouldn't have a problem achieving your goal to see Voyage of The Little Mermaid & Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage. You might even have time for a few extras as well!

    By the time you check in and settle and head back out for the bus, you might find it closer to 3:00/3:30 by the time you're in the park. When you arrive by bus from Pop Century to Disney's Hollywood Studios park, be sure to grab yourself a 'Times Guide' slip & park map on the way in. On the back side of the Times Guide you'll find a listing of times for Beauty and the Beast and THAT is what you'll want to gear your afternoon & early evening around. Show times do vary from week to week but there is likely to be a showing at around 4pm and again around 5:45pm ... these are only approximations based on past visits but a fairly good indicator of what to expect in terms of frequency of shows. The show is 30 minutes long. Be sure to check the guide for exact times.

    Once you've determined the show time that suits your timing, head on back to Animation Courtyard to Voyage of The Little Mermaid. This show is 17 minutes long and runs continuously until just before the park closes.

    If you have time, you may also get to catch Disney Junior - Live on Stage! which is right near Voyage of the Little Mermaid.

    If you have any other planning questions, please do visit again.
    Wishing you a Magical time at Walt Disney World Cortney!
