    Planning our 1st trip to WDW in May and celebrating my dtr's 3rd bday. We magically got a reservation at CRT for dinner but @ 9:35pm. Can we do the parade & fireworks and get to the castle in time for photo op w/ our royal host and dinner? Quickest rou

    Hi Jessica,

    Hooray for first trip and dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table! What a special treat for your daughter.

    It is going to be tough to do both. I would say you have a good shot of seeing the parade but not the fireworks. You will need to be at Cinderella's Royal Table by 9:25 pm for your reservation and the entrance is around the back by Fantasyland. 

    If the parade is at 8, you will be fine to watch the parade and then head to Cinderella's Royal Table for your meal. A good location is on the bridge by Sleepy Hollow near Liberty Square. This takes you straight on a path towards the back of the castle.

    Wishes, the fireworks show, usually goes off at 10 and you will be in the middle of dinner. However, if they go off after 10:45, you might have a shot.

    You can get a copy of the schedule for Magic Kingdom at your Walt Disney World Resort or at the entrance to the park. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
