    My daughter has a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment at 1:55 pm. The only parade that day is at 3 pm. we intend to watch the parade from Frontierland. Will we be finished BBB in time and able to get to Frontierland to join up with our family?

    Welcome to planDisney, Carol! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. A royal transformation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a special experience that so many families anticipate on their trips to Walt Disney World Resort, and I'm so pleased to hear that you secured a reservation for your daughter next week. I definitely understand that there are so many things that you want to fit into your day at Magic Kingdom Park, so let's chat about timing and what you can expect at your Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointment.

    Carol, appointment lengths at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique can vary depending on several factors. The actual experience takes around 30 to 60 minutes, but I recommend budgeting 90 minutes of your day to check in, meet your Fairy Godmother's Apprentice, choose your package and outfit, and complete the transformation. While I think you may be in and out in time to meet your family in Frontierland for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, there are a lot of moving parts, and the full experience can take longer than you've currently planned for.

    If you can, try to move your appointment to a little earlier in the day. Even an hour earlier should give you enough time to do both! I know this is challenging since Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is such a popular reservation, but keep checking to see if anything becomes available. You can also ask in person if there are any cancellations for earlier appointments that you might be able to move to. If you're not able to move your reservation, it is a possibility that you may miss the Parade, or you might end up catching it on Main Street, U.S.A., while your family is in Frontierland. I recommend prioritizing whichever experience is most important to you!

    It's not always possible to do everything we want to at The Most Magical Place On Earth since there's so much to see and do. I have been dozens of times, and I still haven't done everything! Whichever option you end up going with, I hope that you have a magical time and you're able to enjoy the full experience. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is so special and is a core memory of so many amazing family vacations, so if you choose to prioritize that reservation with the knowledge that you might miss the Parade, I hope you're able to soak it all in and enjoy that special time with your daughter.

    Have a magical day, Carol!
