    We have a reservation at Tusker House at 11:30 on September 15th, would we have enough time to get to Epcot for a 2 PM reservation at Epcot?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The Tusker House Restaurant  has always been a family favorite and is a "must do" with every Walt Disney World vacation.  The food is delicious and Donald and Friends sure do put a smile on our faces.  I really cannot say enough about this dining experience.  You and your family will love it!

    With every character dining experience, you want to allow at least an hour and a half.  The characters are making their rounds, but you must remember that they are not only allowing for photo opportunities, but many quests are requesting autographs as well. I would expect you to be exiting the restaurant at approximately 1:00 p.m.  With that being said, we always like to tell our guests to allow at least an hour for travel time to another Walt Disney World Park.  If you are utilizing the Disney Transportation System, the buses will run approximately every 20 minutes.  You can then expect a 10 to 15 minute travel time between parks.  Once you arrive, you will need to walk to the entrance of the park and have your bags checked. Then you can proceed to your destination once inside the park.  Epcot is a big park!  Please keep in mind that this would be the ideal scenario with no bumps along the way.  Personally, I feel that making a 2:00 reservation would prove quite stressful and you are running a big risk of not making your time.  If you are able to change your reservation to 2:30 or later, you will be just fine.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  While at Epcot, make sure to catch IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.  Learn about Earth's history and the beauty that is all around us.
