    We have reservations for Cinderella's table at 4:15. How much time would you think it would take to get back to the hotel, get ready and get back in time for our reservation? We are staying at the Shades of Green:) thanks


    You are going to want to book a lot of time in for travel. You just don't want to miss that reservation. The time to take the bus from the resort to the Transportation & Ticket Center, then to Monorail around to the park entrance is typically around a half hour, minimum. That is assuming no real wait time for your bus or your monorail. It also assumes it is fast-walking adults only, no little kids enjoying the walk. 

    If it were me, I would leave from Shades of Green for the 4:15 pm reservation no later than 3:15 pm. I know you are likely to arrive more than the recommended 15 minutes ahead of your reservation time, but guess what? You are in a theme park, and I think you will find a few things to occupy your extra time!

    So that is the return time. With the assumption that the trip FROM the Magic Kingdom to Shades of Green is approximately that same 30 minutes, I think you can figure out when to leave the park.

    Write me back if you need any further help!

    Have a magical vacation!
