    We have dinner at Ohana at 5pm and BBB for my three daughters at 630pm in the castle on the same night that we are attending MNSSHP, too close to do it all? Its okay if we are late to MNSSHP since we'll already be in the MK, right?

    It's fine to arrive at MNSSHP a bit late. However, you will almost certainly not have enough time to eat and make your Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation. In fact, I would honestly be quite shocked if you did.

    'Ohana is a very popular restaurant, and as such is often very crowded and running a bit behind schedule. It's also more of an 'experience' restaurant. There are games for kids, a strolling ukelele player, and a casual, family style meal, all of which combines for a delightful but slower evening. I would allow at least two hours between appointments, and preferably longer. Remember that after you eat, you have to make your way back to the monorail, travel back to the park, go through security, scan your tickets at the gates, and then walk up main street and into the castle, all before checking in for that BBB appointment. Travel time alone will require 20-30 minutes.

    I very strongly suggest that you reschedule one or both of your appointments so that your evening can be an enjoyable one rather than a huge rush. That's no fun for anyone, and certainly won't allow you to take in the Disney magic.
