    How much travel time should I allow when making a dining reservation inside the magic kingdom and traveling by bus from the all star movie resort?

    Hello Kimberly,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Some of the most memorable dining experiences are located inside Magic Kingdom Park, so it makes me happy to know you will get to enjoy some of them.

    My suggestion is to leave your resort one hour before your reservation to allow for travel times. This is a very good suggestion, because then you don’t have to rush and worry about making it on time. Travel times may be shorter, but you also have to consider that traffic can be difficult at times.

    Leave one hour earlier if you are using Complimentary Transportation and you should be absolutely fine. If you arrive earlier, you get to enjoy some more time inside the park. Remember that transportation starts 45 minutes before park opening, so you if have a very early reservation at a time prior to park opening, you should consider taking a taxi from your Disney Resort hotel to Magic Kingdom Park.

    I hope this helps you while planning. Please come back with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
