    If we shoot for a 6:30am check-in at Art of Animation and hop right on their bus to Magic Kingdom afterward, will we get to MK in sufficient time for our 8am breakfast reservation at the Castle? We need to get our magic bands activated before breakfast.

    Hi Melissa -

    Greetings from snowy Massachusetts!

    In general, I recommend leaving about 90 minutes to get to your in-park dining reservations. If you check in right at 6:30am, that should give you enough time. Sometimes it doesn't take that long, but it's always a good idea to leave enough time in case you have to wait longer for a bus.

    Have a great vacation!
