    Getting nervous,excited ! trip only 44 days. Have 4:15 at bog. When should we arrive, will there be a special line for reservations? A party of 10. Also chef mickeys 8:30am from POR will we make it by leaving at 7:30? Thanks so very much for your help.

    Hi, Joan!

    I'm so excited that your trip is coming up so quickly! I can imagine how excited you must be! I'm so glad to hear that you've got an Advanced Dining Reservation at the new Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park! That's been a tough one to get into for dinner, and for 10 people? Wow, you're a planner extraordinaire! I'm impressed! You'll find that the only line at dinner time will be for Guests with Advanced Dining Reservations. There will be a Cast Member outside of the restaurant to direct you inside of Beast's Castle once you arrive and when you step inside, you'll be given a pager that will alert you when your table is ready. I'd say it would be a good idea to arrive 15 minutes prior to your reservation time.

    For your Chef Mickey's reservation, you should be okay leaving Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside at 7:30 a.m., but I always like to allow 90 minutes when using Disney transportation, just to be on the safe side. I'm one of those people who likes to slowly meander and enjoy all the sites there are to see at my own pace. You'll need to take the bus to Magic Kingdom Park and either walk over to Disney's Contemporary Resort [only a 5-minute walk] or hop on the monorail. Either way, it won't take you long!

    I hope this helps, Joan, and if we can help with anything else, please let us know!

    Have a Pixie Dusted vacation!
