    We will be in MK in May with 4 yr old daughter & we want to see the Wishes show. She has been to MK before. We don't want to go in the morning, leave and come back. What time should we get to the park so we can see a lot and still enjoy Wishes?

    Welcome to the Mom's Panel, Gabrielle!  I know your daughter is getting super excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!  May will be here before you know it!  I looked up the Parks Calendar for you and it looks as if Wishes will be at 10:00 p.m. during the month of May. Please know that hours are subject to change so I would recommend checking back a little closer to your arrival by following the link I provided above.  I would recommend getting to Magic Kingdom around 4:00 p.m. to give yourself ample time to enjoy the park and to avoid the congestion that will be on Main Street  U.S.A. for the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade, which is shown daily at 3:00 p.m. If you would like to watch the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade then I would recommend arriving to Magic Kingdom by 1:30 p.m. to allow yourself time to go through the bag check area, ticket turnstiles, and then secure a spot for the afternoon parade. I am a huge fan of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular and feel it is the perfect ending to a Magical Disney Day!  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you!  Sending pixie-dusted wishes that your daughter has a fantastic and memorable trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth!"  
    Happy Planning,
