    We are planning a first-time trip to WDW in Oct. for 6 days with DP. The day we are at AK and I got dinner reservations for CRT at 520 p.m. What time do we need to leave AK to make that? Also is one TS meal a night too much? Can kids eat off adult buffet?

    Hi Mike! A big hurray! for your first Disney vacation! The bus to the Magic Kingdom should take about 25 to 30 minutes. I would leave the Animal Kingdom no later than 4 pm. This will ensure that you're not rushed, and will allow for time to get through bag check and the Magic Kingdom entrance, as well as to walk down Main Street USA as you head to Cinderella Castle.

    I wouldn't say that one table service meal a night is too much. However, because we usually do a signature dining experience or two that require two full service meal credits, we often have a day where we just eat at quick service spots.

    At the buffets, all guests can eat anything they choose. I've been known to enjoy the mac and cheese from the kids table, and my daughter has often eaten from the adult offerings.

    Hope this helps Mike!
