    We have reservations for Chef Mickey's at 10:50am. If we go to Magic Kingdom prior to our meal, what time do you suggest we leave the park to make our reservation? How early should we "check-in" at the restaurant? Thank you so much!

    Hi Jennifer! Definitely plan to get to the Magic Kingdom when it opens on the morning you have a late breakfast at Chef Mickey's planned. You'll be able to experience so many attractions with little waiting early in the morning and then you can go refuel at the yummy Chef Mickey's buffet for an afternoon in the park.

    You can walk or take the monorail to the Contemporary from the Magic Kingdom. Either way the trip will take about 10 minutes, so if you leave the park at 10:30 a.m. you should be there in plenty of time for your reservation. My husband would tell you that, much to his dismay, I never arrive early anywhere,so I'm not the type to show up for a dining reservation much in advance of my scheduled time. However, if you want to arrive 10 or 15 minutes early, you could. Once you check in, you'll be placed in the line to take a photo and then be seated.

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
