    What time does 5:30 Mickey’s Backyard BBQ show end?

    Dear Karen,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Mickey's Backyard BBQ is such a fun time, and I know that you and your family will absolutely love it! The experience is approximately one hour and forty five minutes long, but of course you might want to allow some extra time just in case you get out a few minutes late. You didn't indicate in your question if your reservation is in Category 1 or Category 2, but please be sure to be aware of how early to arrive based on your Category level. 

    If you are in Category 1, you can be seated as early as right after the 4:30pm check-in time opens, whereas Category 2 is typically seated approximately 15 minutes before showtime. That's important to know when you are planning your day.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
