    Hi Panel! We have ADRs for HDDMR at 5pm. We will be at AK that day and were hoping to catch the afternoon parade. Will we have enough time? What is the best route to get to the HDDMR from AK?

    Hi there, Jessica!

    Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade steps off every day, weather permitting. Times can vary, depending upon the season. You will want to check your Times Guide when you arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue (HDDMR) is located in Disney's Fort Wilderness, and you will need to use the bus system.

    You have two options:
    1.   Board Fort Wilderness Bus to Fort Wilderness –> Take Purple, Orange or Yellow bus to Settlement;

    2.  Take Wilderness Lodge Bus to Wilderness Lodge –> Catch water launch to Fort Wilderness (this takes you directly to the Marina, which is in walking distance of HDDMR.

    3.  Have a taxi take you directly to Fort Wilderness –> Take Purple, Orange or Yellow bus to Settlement to eliminate any time spent waiting for the bus.

    I'm not sure that you'll have time to catch the parade, exit the Park, and negotiate transportation in the time window you're likely to have. You'll want to give yourself at least 90 minutes to get to HDDMR for check-in.

    Get the parade time upon arrival and make the decision then. But give yourself plenty of time to arrive at HDDMR with the least amount of frustration and stress. I'd rather get somewhere too early and hang out then get frantic about being late.

    If there's a way of changing to the second performance of HDDMR that night, you might consider that as well; a later seating would eliminate all of the timing challenges and allow you breathing room.

    Have a fantastic time!

    See you later, celebrator,
