    Hi, was looking to do ADR at Captain's Grille at 5pm but also hoping to catch the parade at Magic Kingdom at 7pm, would I have enough time and what would be the best way to get to and from the park? Thanks!!

    The chances of making it back to the Magic Kingdom after a five o'clock reservation at the Yacht Club are slim, Mark, but there's a chance.  You have to assume that actual dining time will be at least an hour. Assuming you are seated promptly, that puts you at six o'clock.  From there, you'd need to allow thirty-forty minutes for travel time (a bus from the Magic Kingdom to the Yacht Club and back again is best).  Best case scenario, that gets you back to the Magic Kingdom right around 6:30.  As long as you don't mind not having a front row seat for viewing the parade, you should be able to watch it pass.  Of course, a longer meal or any transportation mishaps would put a wrench in your plans, so be prepared for that.  If it's imperative that you see the parade, I'd opt for a Magic Kingdom area restaurant.  Good luck!
