    So excited to be staying at the Polynesian the week of Feb 23. One of the nights we have a 5:00 ADR at Ohana. Will we be done in time to catch the 7pm parade in MK?

    Hi DeAnna!

    It will be close but should be doable. Ohana is one of the most popular restaurants and you will have to wait usually to get in even with a reservation. Since you have to wait at least 15 minutes usually, I recommend arriving at 4:45 at the latest. My family generally spends an hour to an hour and a half at Ohana depending on whether the kids get involved in the various family activities. So if you are seated soon, you may be done eating by 6:30 pm. I would budget 15 minutes to get back to the Magic Kingdom via monorail. I would plan on 10 to 15 minutes more to get through security, enter the park, and walk to Town Square. As you can see, it will be close!

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
