    We have a 6:45pm reservation for Story Book dining at the Wilderness Lodge. What time should we leave the Magic Kingdom in order to arrive on time? Thank you!

    Hi ho! Hi ho!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lee.  It sounds like you are planning the perfect fairy tale adventure during your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World!  I am excited for you to experience all of the magic waiting for you!

    Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White is a unique character dining experience with the opportunity to meet the most ruthless of them all, the Evil Queen!  You have a few transportation options to get to your reservation at Disney's Wilderness Lodge from the Magic Kingdom.

    If you use Disney's Minnie Van Service, you can reduce your overall travel time and can schedule your ride to pick you up at a specific time right outside of the gates of Magic Kingdom Park.  You could plan for 20 to 30 minutes before your reservation time if using this service, which my new favorite way to get around Walt Disney World!  This is a paid service supported by Lyft.  Be sure to schedule your ride ahead of time using the Lyft app or else request the ride at least 45 minutes before your reservation to give the app a chance to find you a driver.

    If using Disney's water or bus transportation to get to your reservation, I would recommend leaving Magic Kingdom Park about an hour before your reservation in the event you need to wait for a bus or ferry, as well as actual travel time.

    Hop in a mine train and ride back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any other questions while planning your vacation!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
