    We have reservations with Chef Mickey at the Contemporary at 11:50am. What do you recommend we do if we arrive at Magic Kingdom at 9 am? Thanks!!!

    Hi there Krystal!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  Based on my own personal experience, I would head to Fantasyland first and try to experience as many attractions as possible before you need to leave the park. If you were unable to secure a FastPass+ selection for an attraction or Character Greeting on your "must do" list, you may want to take the opportunity to do so before the park becomes more crowded. I recommend leaving Magic Kingdom Park by 11:15 a.m. to allow yourself ample time to travel to Chef Mickey's. You can either take the monorail or make the short walk to Disney's Contemporary Resort from Magic Kingdom Park.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Krystal!

    Happy Planning,
