    If we are driving our own car from DHS to Magic Kingdom and have the AA Parking Passes to park up closer how long will it take us to get from DHS to MK? Going to make reservations at Crystal Palace but not sure what time - want to see the 3:00 parade at MK

    Hi Maggi! You will want to allow for at least an hour between leaving Disney's Hollywood Studios and arrving at the gate of Magic Kingdom. The drive itself only takes 15-20 minutes, but you will want to allow for traffic, parking, lines and commuting from the parking lot to the park. I find that just getting from the parking lot at the Magic Kingdom to the actual gates, can take 20 minutes or even longer depending upon crowd levels. This is because you will need to take the monorail or ferry from the parking lot to the actual gates. If you want to make reservations at Crystal Palace and see the 3:00 paade, I would suggest leaving Disney's Hollywood Studios by noon and making a reservation at Crystal Palace for 1:30. This will give you one hour to eat and 30 minutes to score a seat on the sidewalk for viewing the parade. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with! Magically, Stacy
