    Hello. We have a 635 pm dinner reservation at Chef Mickeys, how long will it take us to walk from Mk to Contemporary? Where can we see the fireworks from there? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Jessica. Thanks so much for sharing your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are getting every detail planned for your upcoming vacation. I love it!

    When my husband and kiddos walk from Magic Kingdom to Disney's Contemporary Resort, it typically takes us 10-15 minutes. When my parents join us, we usually plan for an extra 5-10 minutes as my dad is not a fast walker. It's an easy walk that you will enjoy as you make your way over to Chef Mickey's.

    Following your meal, make your way through the merchandise stores (they are some of my favorites) over to the exit leading to the Sky Way Bridge to Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Outside those doors is a large balcony area with great views of the fireworks.

    While you are at Disney's Contemporary Resort, be sure to add some extra magic to your evening by watching the Electrical Water Pageant. Sea creatures and flags cross the lagoon while electronic tunes play during this nighttime parade. Check with the front desk when you arrive at Disney's Contemporary Resort to confirm what time the Pageant will pass by the Resort hotel.

    Thanks again for your questions and please let us know if you need any other information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
