    Hey. I just want to start off by saying this panal is great and I have learned so much from all the great advice. Now for the question, we have an ADR for Donald's breakfast at 10:05. Is there enough time for my niece to get BBB in MK by 11:55 am?

    Hi Meredith,

    Thanks so much for the kind words. We love helping sprinkle a little Disney magic even when we are states away from Mickey. Our family loves breakfast with Donald at Animal Kingdom. It is a great setting and the characters are so much fun in their safari garb. We especially enjoy the great mixture of standard breakfast selections as well as the numerous unique choices.

    Typically we allow 75 to 90 minutes for any of our table service dining experiences. At a minimum, it takes approximately 60 minutes for the characters to make a complete loop around the restaraunt and be seen by all the guests. Once you finish breakfast you will need to travel from the restaraunt back to the front of Animal Kingdom and to the Disney buses. I would figure in 15-20 minutes to walk to the buses from where you are.

    Disney buses run about every twenty minutes and the ride from Animal Kingdom to Magic Kingdom is around twenty minutes. Once you arrive at Magic Kingdom you will need to allow a few minutes to pass through security and the turnstiles and a few more to walk to the Castle.

    Given this entire scenario, it is unlikely you would be able to make it to an 11:55 Bibbidi Bobbidi appointment following your breakfast. The time frame is just to short and will make you very rushed to try and squeeze it all in. I have always found when we try and squeeze to much in, in such a short time, we do not enjoy ourselves. I would suggest a few options, either moving your breakfast up, or your niece's appointment back. The other suggestion would be to change one of the reservations to another day.

    Good luck with your choice.
