    Hi! We will be at MK the day 1st day of our trip and have a 630pm ADR for Whispering Canyon & then we have a ADR for Grand Floridian Café at 630pm the day we visit Epcot. What time should we leave the parks to make the reservations by car?

    Hello, Alyssa!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am very excited to read about some of your Disney dining experiences!  The Whispering Canyon Cafe is a family favorite and a "must do" with every Walt Disney World vacation.  You are going to LOVE this dining experience.  Just be careful with what you ask for!

    We always recommend that you allow at least an hour to an hour and a half when commuting around the Walt Disney World Resort area. Personally, I would play it safe and use the hour and a half as my rule for travel.  Trust me, the last thing you want to worry about is making your dining reservation while on vacation. 

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Need to take care of shopping while on your WDW vacation?  Download the Shop Disney Parks App for some great Disney merchandise.  

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
