    We have booked Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney Springs (we are choosing the most basic package) for 8:30am and we have a reservation at Akershus for 10:30am that same morning. Do you think we can make it on time to our character breakfast? Thanks!

    Hello Mindy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    With a morning that includes a magical makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and Character Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall planned, your concern over timing is justified.

    As far as making your Advanced Dining Reservations at 10:30am, the major concern is your choice of transportation. While Walt Disney World Resort Transportation can get you to many locations during your vacation, the general rule is to plan 60 minutes for traveling to any one location. This would leave 60 minutes for your Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience at Disney Springs (and your appointment starts promptly at 8:30am) and 60 minutes to travel to Epcot.

    However, when traveling from Disney Springs to a Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park, you must first stop at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and transfer to Epcot from there. This puts a little more pressure on the timing of your Advanced Dining Reservations. If you go this route, I recommend that you take Disney Transportation to Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and walk to the International Gateway Entrance through World Showcase to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.

    If not, you should look into using the Minnie Van Service to get you to Epcot on time. While it comes with a $25 flat fee for one-way transportation, it is the most reliable route to ensure that you are able to experience the magic of both your magical makeover and dining with your favorite Disney Princesses.

    Have a Magical Morning!
