    My family of 4 is eating at chef mickeys at 4:45 then have tickets to MNSSHP. Another family eating at Boma same time. Where is a good place to all meet up to enter MK together that is not overly crowded and we can actually find each other? Thanks!

    Hi Denise,

    It sounds like you have a fabulous evening planned.  I have two suggestions for meeting up with the other family in your party.  One is at the security screening for guests without bags at the entrance to the Magic Kingdom.  As you can guess, most families entering the parks have lots of "park gear" and, as such, the area reserved for guest without bags is generally free of crowds.  You can meet here and then proceed to the regular security check together if you have bags to carry inside the park.  Another option is to meet your friends at the bus stop for Animal Kingdom Lodge at the Magic Kingdom.  You can walk over to the bus stop from the Contemporary (using the walkway to the Magic Kingdom).  It's about a five to seven minute stroll at a leisurely pace.  I'm assuming, of course, that your friends are taking the bus from the resort after their dinner.  If so, this is a good spot to meet before heading to the park together.

    Have a wonderful night!
