    Hi Erin! Hoping you can help me. If we have BBB appt at 8:05 am at MK & must arrive by 7:55, what time should we arrive in parking lot to get to BBB on time? We are staying off property. Also, can we rent stroller at 7:55 am? Thanks for all the help!!!

    OK, lets do this backwards:

    - You need to be at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at 7:55.
    - It takes 5-7 minutes to walk from the front of the park to the castle. Plus you're going to want to stop and get a few photos of the family in front of the castle, because this is a rare opportunity to do this without other guests in the background of your shot. So, you're going to want to walk into the park by 7:45.
    - Give yourself 5 minutes to go through park security. Lines will be minimal at this hour. You're at 7:40.
    - You'll need 5-7 more minutes to rent the stroller. The rental area should be open. Give yourself 3 minutes to find the correct entrance turnstile to the park. There will be a line marked something like "early character breakfasts." Even though you're not dining, this is where you need to go. A cast member will verify your reservation on a list. You're at about 7:30.
    - You need to take the monorail from the Ticket and Transportation Center to the Magic Kingdom. You're at 7:20.
    - You need to get from your parking spot to the TTC, you're at 7:15.
    - You need to pay the parking attendant, drive to your spot, and park. You're at about 7:05.

    That was being conservative all the way around. But I feel confident that if you arrive at the parking gate by 7:05, you'll make your reservation on time without being rushed.
