    Hi! We are coming to Disney in Jan 2017 - and staying at Kidani Village thru DVC. How much time should we allot to get from the hotel to Breakfast at Cinderella's Castle in the morning? We have an 8:20 am reservation. Thanks!


    It sounds like you are planning a truly unforgettable Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Amy! It is really incredible to wake up animals of the African savanna just beyond your balcony and find yourself dining with your favorite princesses just a short time later. I am excited for you!

    I would plan to leave your Villa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village at 7 A.M. This allows for up to 20-minutes for your bus to arrive, about 25-minutes to travel to Magic Kingdom Park, then plenty of time to clear security and take fantastic crowd-free photos on Main Street U.S.A and in front of Cinderella Castle before reaching Cinderella's Royal Table.

    If you find yourself with some extra time, check out the window displays along Main Street U.S.A. These are easy to power past when you are cruising towards your next experience, but they are lovely! No matter how many times I have strolled down my favorite street, I always find something new. 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
