    We have 7:30 reservations at Garden Grove, what park is closest and how long will it take us to get there from that park. We will be driving our car. Thanks!

    Hello Belinda!

    I am glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Garden Grove restaurant is located at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.  The hotel allows very convenient access to Epcot Theme Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  From either park, there is a convenient walking path to the Swan. Regardless of your place, I would allow 30-45 minutes to be on the safe side.  You will likely arrive much quicker, but you may want to stop and take in the scenery along the way.  You also have the option of hopping on the water transportation from either park.  Driving from either park will be quicker.  Once you hop in your car, i would allow 15 minutes for the trip as well as parking at the Swan.  Keep in mind that if you are staying onsite and Extra Magic Hours is happening, you may want to leave you car at the theme park and return there after your dinner.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
