    I scheduled my daughter in the BBB at 1:40pm and then a 6:45pm dinner at Cinderella's castle. I was hoping to have her nap at the hotel (Marriot world center) in between reservations. How much time should I allow to get back into the MK?

    Hi Meghan!

    Your daughter is going to love the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! Your little girl will be transformed into a princess. Make sure to bring a camera and lots of tissues. 

    I always like to allow for at least an hour between leaving my destination and arriving at the Magic Kingdom. The drive there isn't that bad, maybe 15-20 minutes, but arriving to the gates at the Magic Kingdom is a process. Once you arrive, you will park in one of the lots, depending upon how crowded the park is, it could be quite far away. You will then take the tram from the parking lot to the Tickets and Transportation Center, and you will then need to take the monorail or the ferry to the gates at the park.

    Allowing time for your bag check at security and walking from the gates to the Cinderella Castle all take additional time. You will also want to arrive a few minutes early to your reservation, so you can allow time to check in.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation! I know that your little princess will love dining and mingling with the princesses at the Magic Kingdom!
