    34 days 'till departure for our first WDW trip!!! Reservation for BBB is for 8:30am on a day when the MK opens @ 9... Wanting to know how to handle this? We are driving from the Windsor Hills Resort, would love advise on a time to leave for the park? :)

    Hi Candice,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  Now is the time to sort out all of those last minute details, and you've come to the right place.

    SInce you are arriving by car, I suggest you arrive at the Magic Kingdom toll gates by 7:45 A.M.  This will give you plenty of time to park, walk (or take tram) to the monorail station where you will board to travel to the main gates.  All guests with bags are required to go through security for a quick search of the bags.  Once you've finished with security, you should head to the far right hand side of the turnstiles for entrance into the park.  Be sure to have your reservation number handy in the event they ask.

    Have a great time, and be sure to snap a few pictures on a relatively empty Main Street as you make your way to the castle.
