    Love the Panel, read every day!! We have reservations for our DD3 for the MK BBB at 8:05 on 9/16. We are staying at POR, what time will we need to leave to get to MK on time? Also will our entire party be allowed in to MK early?

    Hi, Kathryn! Your little princess is going to feel so pampered at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. You are a gracious mom for arranging this for her! Usually Disney transportation starts running about 30 minutes prior to the first breakfast reservation at the Magic Kingdom. (You may have to make sure of this with your resort concierge and/or look for breakfast ADR buses to ask about its destinations.)  Therefore, you probably can catch a bus from Port Orleans Riverside as early as 7:00 a.m. on the morning of her BBB appointment. This will allow you plenty of time so that you don't have to rush, and they usually recommend arriving at BBB at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment anyway. You will need to tell the cast members at the gate that you have a BBB appointment if they are not allowing guests in when you arrive.

    Most of the time, they will allow traveling parties to stay together. Yet, the BBB at the MK is somewhat a tight squeeze. Therefore, they may only allow a few in at a time to see the princess getting pampered. The others will have to wait outside in the breezeway of Cinderella Castle if the park has not officially opened yet. This may take a little pre-planning (i.e. bringing snacks or entertainment options) for those who are waiting.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
