    We are there on Jan. 28/13 & we have ADRs for BBB at 8:50am at MK for 2 dd age 9, Akershus for breakfast at Epcot at 11am & storytime with a princess at 12:15pm. This seems tight but is it even do able? Any recommendations to get to Epcot from MK

    Hi there Lisa, Based on what you've told me, it looks like your plan is feasible, but you'll definitely be rushing.  Let's say you are actually called for your Bibbidi Bobbidi appointment at 9:00 and the appointment takes an hour... you'll have to make your way back down Main Street to the park exit, then to the monorail station.  

    Once there, you'll need to board a monorail and disembark at the second stop, the Ticket and Transportation Center where you'll have to switch monorails and board one headed to Epcot!  Travel time between the TTC and Epcot is about 12 minutes, but once there, you'll have to make your way down the monorail station ramp and over to the entrance turnstiles where you may have to wait in line.  Based on my calculations, it is possible that you'll arrive at Epcot around or before 11:00.

    After you've entered Epcot, you'll have to head through Future World all the way to World Showcase which is located in the back of the park. The walk from the entrance to World Showcase is about 10 minutes, and luckily, Norway, home of Akershus is the second pavilion you'll come to if you make a left when you come to the dead end at World Showcase Lagoon, so once you reach this point, it's not much farther.

    Dining at Akershus usually takes about an hour but sometimes a little more.  The AAA Princess Story Time is located in Innoventions West, all the way back out in Future World, and I think they ask you to arrive a few minutes prior to your scheduled time slot.

    I think you might be better off to schedule a late lunch at Akershus, after the AAA Story Time.  This way, you won't be rushing at all!  You'll have plenty of time to travel from the Magic Kingdom to Epcot, and after the Story Time, you can head over to Norway to enjoy lunch with the princesses without having to hurry! AAA Story Time only lasts about 30 minutes, so you could be dining by 1:00!

    Best Wishes,
