    Have reservations on Monday night, November 14 at Chef Mickey's at 6:45. Is it too ambitious to try to eat at Chef Mickey's, then watch Holiday WIshes from the Contemporary Beach, then hop on the monorail and get to Epcot in time for Illuminations?

    Hi Erin!

         Your plan sounds extremely ambitious and I am not certain that it is entirely doable.  Typically, dinner at Chef Mickey's takes at least 60 to 90 minutes.  There is not a Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in the Magic Kingdom on Monday night November 14th, 2011 so the fireworks show will be the normal Wishes Nighttime Spectacular which is scheduled for 8:00 pm on that night.  Wishes lasts for around 15 minutes. Then you would have to take a bus directly to Epcot or take the Monorail to the Ticket and Transportation Center and transfer to another Monorail that goes to Epcot.  This journey can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on how long that you have to wait for transportation.  Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is scheduled at 9:00 pm on that night.  If all of the stars align and Tinker Bell sprinkles some Pixie Dust on you, you may be able to do everything on your wish list on that night, but I would suggest only planing on going to one fireworks show that evening so that you don't end up feeling like you just ran the Amazing Race!

    I hope that you end up having a magical evening with whatever you choose to do that night!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
