    We are bringing our daughters to Disney for their 4th birthday.I was able to get a 320p reservation at BBB and Royal Table at 430p. Two questions- will we be able to watch the 3p parade and get there in time? And then after BBB, make it to Royal Table?

    Greetings, Royal Family!

    Anna, first of all, wishing a most magical Happy 4th Birthday to your lovely daughters! I can’t think of a better place to celebrate such a special occasion than at Magic Kingdom Park! Be sure to stop by Guest Relations or the front desk of your Disney Resort Collections hotel (if you're staying at one) to get special Birthday buttons for your princesses!

    Your plans are truly ambitious, and the excitement is relatable! However, I must confess that fitting everything into such a short window may be quite stressful and, in this case, I’m not sure is doable. 

    Allow me to offer some royal suggestions to make your day more enjoyable and less rushed:

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique: This experience is all about the transformation. Your Princesses will first choose their outfits and extras, and then they will have a chance to change (feel free to bring dresses from home). The makeover process itself is a memorable journey, typically taking about 90 minutes once your Princesses are called back. If you’re hoping to experience Cinderella’s Royal Table, I would recommend trying to move either the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation or your dining reservation.

    The Festival of Fantasy Parade is truly magical. It will kick off in Frontier land and take the parade route up to Main St. U.S.A. If you wait to view the parade somewhere between Frontierland and Liberty Square, you “may” be able to make it just on time to check in at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. The parade itself has a run time of approximately 12 minutes. 

    I recommend keeping an eye on availability for either an earlier BBB appointment or a slightly later dining reservation. This way, you can ensure a more relaxed and enjoyable transition between activities.

    Remember, the magic of Disney is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace, allowing you to fully immerse in each experience without the stress of rushing. Wishing your princesses a truly magical birthday celebration filled with joy, laughter, and unforgettable moments!

    Regally yours,
