    we are staying at the AOA and have made reservation for our daughter at the Boutique inside MK. her appointment is at 8:15 before park opens. How much time do we need to travel from the resort to the castle in the MK and best way to get there

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marylynn.

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort and a coveted reservation at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique~Magic Kingdom in Cinderella Castle, well done!

    I love early morning reservations into Magic Kingdom Park where the opportunity for unique photos is at your feet. Walt Disney World® Bus Service will get you to your magical appointment from Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Please allow bus wait time and travel time to Magic Kingdom Park roughly 60-minutes before your scheduled appointment. I would make sure everyone head over to the Bus Stop just outside the doors from Animation Hall by 7:00 AM after a hearty breakfast at Landscape of Flavors.

    1) During your daughter's magical transformation at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, please ask a Fairy Godmother-in-Training about the possibility of the 'Princess Parade' later on that day.
    2) Visit the "Cars" section of Disney's Art of Animation Resort at night where everything is lit in neon creating an optimal photo opportunity.
    3) Check out your Resort hotel recreation, especially the nightly 'Movies Under the Stars'!
    4) Complete your Resort Online Check-In 60-days in advance of your arrival to expedite check-in day; MagicBands will be waiting there too.

    Best Disney Wishes!
