    My family has dinner reservations at Whispering Canyon for 7:15 pm will we be able to make it back in time to Magic Kingdom for Happily Ever after show at 10 pm?

    Hi Karina,

    Ooh...it sounds like you have an AMAZING evening planned during your vacation! Whispering Canyon Cafe is not only delicious, but so much fun, and Happily Ever After is my very favorite nighttime experience at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    With a 7:15 p.m. dinner reservation and a 10:00 p.m. Happily Ever After show time, I'm happy to let you know that you should have no trouble experiencing both in the same evening. Dinner will usually last around an hour, give or take a little, so you should have plenty of time to catch the boat over to Magic Kingdom after dinner. You'll love ending your day with the cool lasers and lights, how'd-they-do-that? projections, inspiring music, and spectacular fireworks that make up the Happily Ever After show. It's truly incredible!

    Either before or after your dinner, I'd encourage you to walk around Disney's Wilderness Lodge a bit. It's breathtakingly gorgeous, and you'll find lots of neat features like the Fire Rock Geyser, which erupts every hour on the hour throughout the day. When you're ready to leave, you'll want to look for the red flag boat launch, which will take you on a leisurely boat ride directly to Magic Kingdom Park. As long as you leave Disney's Wilderness Lodge by around 9:00 p.m., you should have no trouble making it in time for Happily Ever After. Just make sure you find a spot where the front of Cinderella Castle is visible. You won't want to miss the projections!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Karina, and please let us know if you have any other questions. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
