    I have a reservation for The Coral Reef at Dec 12 2017 12 p.m., which has a link with a reservation for Candlelight Processional at 5:00 p.m. At the same day I would like to see The Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM at Hollywood Studios at 6:30 p.m. Can I make it?

    Hi, Rodrigo! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We’re happy you have decided to stop by!

    I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don’t think you will make it to Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! After your 5:00 pm Candlelight Processional presentation. The latter of the two running about 40-45 minutes at Epcot, that would bring you to about 5:45 pm, then you would have to exit Epcot via the International Gateway and either walk to Disney’s Hollywood Studios (20-30 minute walk), or take boat transportation (30-45 minute ride). Alternatively, you could walk to the front gate of Epcot and board the bus, but that would be a longer walk and it might be a bit of a wait for the bus. As you can see, the timing is not ideal. Is it plausible- yes. Would I personally try it- no.That being said, you already have a wonderful day planned with Coral Reef Restaurant and the Candlelight Processional (which happens to be narrated by Warwick Davis on your event night), my suggestion would be to stay at Epcot and view IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth for a more relaxed evening still filled with firework fun! If you happen to plan on going the “Disney Ninja” route and attempt to go to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I do hope you make it in time as it is also a fun show!

    Have a very merry holiday and please visit us again soon,
