    Hi, have a 5pm ADR for Mickey's BBQ. Told to arrive @ 4. Planning on taking boat from MK. How long is boat ride & what time should we plan to depart MK? TIA

    Hi Susan,

    I've heard great things about Mickey's Backyard Barbecue!  In fact, I'm looking forward to trying it out on our next family vacation.

    The boat ride from Magic Kingdom to Fort Wilderness takes about 15 minutes.  I always factor in another 15-20 minutes to account for the time spent waiting for transportation.  If you want to arrive by 4:00, plan on leaving Magic Kingdom around 3:15.  Although, I think you have a little bit of flexibility in your arrival time since your reservation isn't until 5:00 -- as long as you're heading out of the park by 3:30, you should be fine.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
