    We have reservations for dinner at Cinderella's Royal Palace on a Saturday at 8:20. We plan to go to the room first to get ready then head to the Palace. How soon should we leave the POP in order to make it to dinner on time?

    Hi Amber!

    If you are taking Disney transportation (the buses) I would say that you should leave at least 2 hours ahead of your reservation time.  I know that sounds like a lot, but you have to take into consideration that the buses are notoriously slow, and it takes a while to actually get into the Magic Kingdom from where the buses drop you off.  You also have to get through the crowds on Main Street USA.  Make sure you check the park calendar for the day of your reservation.  If there is a parade or fireworks show going on you'll need even more time to get to Cinderella Castle.   So it might sound like I'm exaggerating, but I'm really not.  If you can get there a little earlier, I'd go for it. 

    I hope this helps!  Have a magical vacation!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
