    Rayna, Your last answer was so helpful. Can you please confirm that Princess Tea starts at 10:30 am b/c on Disney.com it says 9 AM? Like to do BBB right before. How long does it take to get from DS to GF? Earliest res time @ BBB and time buses start to DS?

    Hey Nicholas! So, I did some resEARch, and I think I’ve got answers to all of your (our!) questions about Disney’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party.

    First - times! I talked with a few Cast Members to verify and on MOST days, the tea party is at 10:30 am. But (depending on circumstance), there are a few days where it is at 9:00 am. They suggest you call 180 days out, then verify that the party is at 10:30 on your desired day. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney Springs is open from 8:30 am to 7:30 pm, and I think you should reserve an 8:30 am slot. The boutique experience lasts ~40 minutes, but plan for up to an hour. This way you have enough time to enjoy your daughter’s magical transformation without rushing to the fete!

    The trip from Disney Springs to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is about 10 minutes via car. By bus, it could take anywhere from 20 minutes up to an hour. I think the best way is to drive to Disney Springs from your Resort and then to the tea party. If you don’t have a car on your trip, take advantage of the Minnie Van Service. You request and pay for the ride anywhere across Walt Disney World through the Lyft app. Minnie Vans operate from 6:30 am to 12:30 am daily. If you want to use the bus service, they start running from the Resorts 45 minutes before Disney Spring’s opening and go until 1:00 am. Buses run every 20 minutes.

    Finally - look what I found! You can prep your Princess for her trip with the Disney Princess Enchanted Collection! It’s a subscription service that offers a unique box of treasures delivered to your door every other month! It is the perfect way to prep for her Royal vacation.

    Nicholas, if you have any other questions, you know where to find us!
