    I'll be visiting the WDW this December with my family and have dinner reservations at the Crystal Palace for 4:40 pm. Will we have sufficient time to get through dinner without being too rushed and catch a spot to watch the evening MK parade at 7:00 pm?

    Hi there, Craig!

    If you check in to the Crystal Palace at 4:40 PM, you should be seated by 5:00 PM. Dinner typically takes about an hour; that's the approximate amount of time it will take for the characters to cycle through all of the tables.

    With an hour to enjoy the buffet - even including that twenty minutes of lead time - you'll be out around 6:00 PM. And that hour should be enough time to find a spot on the parade route for the 7:00 PM parade.

    Enjoy - and have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
