    We will be in Disney 10/22 - 10/27. Our trip was planned well within 180 day ADR window but I was surprised last night to see a 7:20 reservation at Be Our Guest on 10/22 so I snagged it. Will that allow us enough time to see the 9:00 p.m. parade?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Congratulations!!  I have found that it is always a good idea to continue checking Advanced Dining Reservations and FastPass+ selection availability, even when I'm actually already on the vacation.  I have had some amazing reservations, such as Le Cellier, open up at the last moment, and like you I was able to snag them quickly.  This is one reason why I really like using the My Disney Experience app, because it functions in real time like our daily lives.

    I think you will be able to get to the 9:00 p.m. parade as long as you check in a bit early to Be Our Guest restaurant and also let your server know you are wanting to be finished by parade time.  It would help too if you would familiarize yourself with the menu choices so that you can order shortly after being seated.  If your parade starts at 9:00 p.m., then it will take a few minutes for the parade to arrive where you will view it.  So even if you do not leave the restaurant until 9:00 p.m. you should still be able to see most/all of the parade.  The only problem that I see is that you will likely not be able to view the parade curbside since other Guests will have been waiting for 30-60 minutes in those spots while you were dining at Be Our Guest restaurant.  If you are content with viewing the parade from behind a few people, then I say go for it!

    Thank you for submitting your question to us Jennifer!  Please let us know if you have any further vacation planning questions.  We are always happy to help!
