    How long should we allow for a evening table service meal? We have a 6, 2, and 1 year old and have a variety of evening activites like fireworks, parade, water pagent , All on different nights and want to make sure we don't have to rush before they start.

    Hello Jana,

    I think it is safe to say that if you give yourself about 1 to 1 1/2 hours for a sit down table service meal (which is normally what I find that my family sits for, including all the bathroom breaks we seem to need!), then you are giving enough time for planning.  It can also be a bit longer if your little ones are not ready to leave those wonderful characters, in case you are doing some character dining experiences.  If you happen to be done before that....GREAT!!! and if not, then at least you are ahead of the game.  I would strongly suggest that you give yourselves ample time for transportation to and from your different venues, this is normally where we end up missing events that we have scheduled.  If you haven't seen the Electrical Water Pageant then I say, definitely do not miss this one, I think it is incredible and my daughter and I have always put time away to see this on every vacation we take to Walt Disney World!

    Have a magical trip!!!!
