    We have a breakfast reservation at Crystal Palace at 9:40 am. I'm wondering how long it takes to walk from the entrance of the Magic Kingdom to Big Thunder Mountain. I would love to enter the park, head to Big Thunder Mountain, than go to breakfast.

    Hi there, Jennifer!

    Once you have passed through security bag check and the entrance touch points, you should be able to make it to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad within 10 minutes, depending on your pace.  If you walk briskly, you can be there much faster.  As you reach the end of the buildings on Main Street, USA, veer to the left and go through Adventureland, which will lead you to the attraction in Frontierland.  I suggest that you arrive at Crystal Palace for your reservation at 9:30am for check-in.  I also recommend that you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park prior to park opening so that you can head to your favorite attractions right away.  

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I wish you a truly magical vacation.
