    Great Panel. If we have an ADR at GF Cafe at 5:00, will we make it to the Electrical Light Parade at MK at 7:00? Can we leave our car at GF while at Park for those couple of hours? Thanks so much for your help!

    Hi Heather!

         Thanks!  This is a tough call - the Grand Floridian Cafe is a causal restaurant that caters mainly to guests staying at that particular resort, so it usually isn't too crowded.  Once you are seated, a typical meal at a Disney restaurant takes about one hour and 15 minutes.  So let's say you are seated around 5:15 and are finished with your dinner by 6:30.  This will give you just enough time to grab the monorail and dash over to the Magic Kingdom.  Depending on the time of year, you may not be able to find a good viewing spot.  I would suggest heading to the bridge to Tomorrowland and taking in the parade from that vantage point.  You aren't super close to the action, but you will be able to see just about everything!

          Feel free to leave your car at the Grand Floridian while you head to the Magic Kingdom for those few hours.  Just don't forget it when you are leaving the Magic Kingdom!

    Much pixie dust,
