    I am trying to plan our dining experiences while we are there? How long should I alow for character dining and travel to and from the parks and hotel

    Hi Amanda!

    For Character meals, I usually give myself about an hour per meal. Since I like to check in a few minutes early, I usually plan to arrive about 10 minutes before my reservation time, so I'm always sure to add that extra time in as well.

    Travel between the parks and hotels varies with their location, but in general, an hour is usually a safe estimate. Since much of the inter-park & resort transportation is by bus, you'll want to leave plenty of time in your schedule in case you just miss a bus and need to wait for the next one.

    Hope this helps with your timing question! Please be sure to let the Moms Panel know if we can help with any other planning details!
