    Hi, we are planning a day to Clearwater beach, Fla during our Disney stay and have reservations that night for Be Our Guest, how early should we plan on arriving at magic kingdom before our reservation time? Thank you!!

    Hi Allison! Now, I will start by saying up front that I usually allow extra time - this way, you don't have to rush or stress about being late. Given this, I would plan on arriving at the Magic Kingdom 45 minutes to an hour before your dinner ressie. You will have to first go through security and bag check, which can be lined up and take some time. Once you get in the park, it's about a 15 minute or more walk straight through the park to Be Our Guest restaurant. And that would be the most difficult part, walking straight there, no stopping for character pictures or any of the 100s of other distractions along the way.

    Be sure to book your reservation as soon as you can, as Be Our Guest is one of the most popular dining spots. Write back with any other questions Allison!
