    We have a reservation for our daughter at the BBBoutique in MK at 5:30. We also have reservations for Akershus in Epcot at 7:05 that same evening. I plan to use Uber Family to get between the parks. Do I have enough time for both reservations?

    Hi Taylor!

    How exciting for your little princess! My daughter loved the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique this past spring and is already asking when she can do it again. After her appointment, we took some gorgeous photos of her transformed into Belle!

    Your schedule is making me a little anxious, and I don’t think you would make it to dinner on time. I would try to make her appointment earlier, or your meal a little later. You may find more availability at one of the two other Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique locations either at Disney Springs or at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    While you do have a reservation for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, anything that involves children should allow for wiggle room. It would not be unusual for you to have to wait a bit for your princesses to be called for her appointment. The transformation itself can take 30 minutes or even a little more depending on the child, hairstyle, and package chosen. We had about a 15-minute wait past our appointment time.

    Also, I find that Guests tend to underestimate the time it takes to get from one park to another. At the Magic Kingdom, the pick-up location for Uber is not directly outside the gates, so you would need to leave extra time to either Monorail or take the ferry back to the Transportation & Ticket Center to the pick-up location. I would recommend a Minnie Van, since they meet you directly outside the Magic Kingdom. Minnie Vans come equipped with two car seats so little princesses can ride in style and safety! Once at Epcot, it can take time to get through security and the gates, and it is approximately a 10 to 15 minute walk to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.

    I would leave yourself no less than 2 hours between reservations. That allows one hour for the appointment itself and a second hour to get from one location to the other without having to run full sprint! I hope this helps with your planning, Taylor. Please let us know what additional questions you have as you plan your exciting visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.
