    We plan to do the parks then go back to swim after lunch with our 3 & 7 yr. olds. What time should we plan to leave Pop Cent. to get to 5pm dinner reservations at 1) Chef Mickeys 2)1900 Park Fare 3)Crystal Palace 4) Garden Grill 5)Boma? THX!

    Hi Teresa!  What wonderful dining choices you made!  You are sure to have some wonderful meals on your Disney vacation!

    You did not mention the dates of your vacation but please understand during more crowded times at Walt Disney World you will want to give yourself even more time to reach your destinations.  You want to eat without stress and if you reach your restaurant early you can take that time to enjoy looking around at the other resorts for possible future vacations.

    The following are only approximate times...please add about 10-15 minutes for wait time.  If you are like me you will always walk out to the bus and see the one you wanted just pulling away!

    Chef Mickey:  bus to Magic Kingdom, walk or monorail to Contemporary resort  (40 minutes)
    1900 Park Fare:  bus to Magic Kingdom, monorail or boat to Grand Floridian  (50 minutes)
    Crystal Palace: bus to Magic Kingdom  (25 minutes)
    Garden Grill:  bus to EPCOT  (15 minutes but then a 5-10 minute walk to Land Pavilion)
    Boma:  bus to Blizzard Beach, change for bus to Animal Kingdom Lodge  (40 minutes)
