    We have one day at MK with a reservation at Bibbidi Boppity Boutique at 8am. My two questions are how early to leave in the morning from Animmal Kingdom Lodge and should I try for fast pass to Elsa after our appointment or just head straight there?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shellie!

    Your little princess is going to love a morning session of pampering at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! It will be the perfect way to begin her day at Magic Kingdom. To get from a resort hotel to a theme park when using bus transportation, I recommend planning 90 minutes transportation time to ensure you have plenty of time to travel. Officially, Complimentary Resort Transportation begins 45 minutes before park opening, but there are generally busses available for Guests with early reservations. Since 6:30 a.m. is very early, I recommend asking the Concierge desk the evening before your reservation about early bus transportation. For my family, we generally choose to catch a taxi for our early reservations to simplify the process and avoid the bus stop wait, which can sometimes make me anxious if the busses are running behind.

    Since everyone wants to meet the sisters from Arendelle, the queues at Meet Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall get very long, very early. So if this is on the "must-do" for your family, I definitely recommend getting a FastPass+ reservation. This will allow you to spend as much of your day as possible enjoying the park and ensure that your little princess gets to meet her favorite princesses!

    If you have any other questions before your trip, please let us know! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
