    My daughter's Bippity Boppity Boutique appt at Downtown Disney is at 11:50AM the morning after we arrive at Port Orleans Riverside. Will we have time to go to Magic Kingdon beforehand that morning or would that make us run too late for her appt?

    Hi Andrea!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your daughter will have so much fun getting treated like a Princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  I personally think that Disney should have an adult version!

    You would probably have time for a quick trip to the Magic Kingdom if you get up early and plan to be there at opening.  It generally opens at 9:00 a.m., but you could get lucky and it could be a day that the Magic Kingdom has morning Extra Magic Hours, which would mean it opens at 8:00 a.m. for Disney Resort guests only.  That would be perfect!  You can find park hours on the Walt Disney World website calendar. 

    Let's say that it opens at 9 a.m., though.  You could get there by 8:45, watch the park opening ceremony, and get to experience a little bit of magic at the Magic Kingdom before heading to your appointment.  I would definitely allow at least an hour of travel time from Magic Kingdom to Downtown Disney, so leave no later than 10:45.  That's over an hour and a half that you could spend at the park.  It's not a lot of time, but it would be a great start to your vacation.  

    Or, you could wait until after her Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique transformation, and she would enter the park as a full-fledged Princess!  Either way sounds great to me!

    I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
