    We have 9:45 reservations for chef mickey and a fast pass for nemo the musical at 11:30-11:50 would we have enough time to see most of the characters and get to animal kingdom in time for the show?

    Hi Leslie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Here is my question.  Are you using Disney transportation to get you to Disney's Animal Kingdom?  If so, you need to allow about an hour and a half for your journey. Here's why… The bus trip to the park will take around 25 minutes to a half hour.  Depending on timing, you may have to wait around 20 minutes for a bus to arrive.  Once at the park, you will have to go through security bag check and the entrance touch points.  Next, you will need to walk over to the theater.  Lastly, you can not be late for your FastPass+ reservation.  By my estimation, you will need to leave Disney's Contemporary Resort by 10:15am at the very latest.  I suggest that you try for Chef Mickey's on another day or get an earlier reservation.   Feel free to write back if you need additional information, Leslie.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
