    We have a reservation at Chef Mickey's at 1:40.  Will we be able to still attend the parade at Magic Kingdom at 3?

    Hi Christy,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  I certainly think you would be able to make the parade, but probably won't get front row seats.  I would assume that it will take you about an hour to dine, then in order to get to the Magic Kingdom as quickly as possible, I suggest you walk.  It is about 5-10 minutes to the gate on foot, whereas if you were to take the monorail you could potentially be looking at 20 minutes (the monorail will stop at the Transportation & Ticket Center, Polynesian and Grand Floridan before arriving at the Magic Kingdom).

    By the time you get through security and the gates it will probably be right around 3:00 p.m., the good news is that this parade begins in Frontierland and ends at Main Street so the parade will not be near the entrance of the park until about 3:20.  This should give you time to find a place on Main Street to view the parade.

    Hope this helps, good luck!
