    Hi Moms, We are dining at the Crystal Palace at 3:20pm. What time should we arrive and navigate to the Crystal Palace to avoid the Parade traffic? Thank you, Sara

    Thank you for returning to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sara! I adore the sweet Pooh and Piglet hugs I get when we dine at The Crystal Palace!

    If I were to have a dining reservation for 3:20, I would arrive at the Magic Kingdom via bus or monorail at 2:45. This would allow ample time for security, passing touchpoints, and walking down Main Street, U.S.A. You’ll want to check in to your eatery about 10 minutes before your reservation time for the hostess to allow seating arrangements, etc. If you would like to shop or perhaps collect some Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom cards before you eat, allow proper time for that. You can always check transportation times in the My Disney Experience Mobile App by searching for The Crystal Palace and requesting directions from your current location. Of course,I try to recommend that you allow 60-90 minutes to get anywhere in Walt Disney World Resort property, as I nearly missed my reservation at Frontierland’s Diamond Horseshoe one time due to a backed up bus line!! 

    If there is anything else I can do to help you plan your visit, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
