    Hi! We are visiting Magic Kingdom on a party day. We have early entry. I was able to get my daughter an appointment at the Boutique at 8:55am. Will we have times for any rides before the appointment. What time can I plan to get a LL for Ariel? 10? 10:30?

    Welcome to planDisney, Julia! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. I'm so pleased to hear you've got your daughter a reservation for a magical transformation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. That's a really coveted reservation, especially right at the beginning of the day! I'm happy to talk with you about planning your time and the best options for making the most out of your morning at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Julia, with the Theme Park opening at 8:30 AM for Early Entry, I don't recommend rushing to get an attraction done in the few minutes before your reservation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Even if an attraction has a short 10 to 15-minute wait, it doesn't leave you a lot of time to walk there, ride, and then get to Cinderella Castle for your appointment. Instead, use that opportunity to have a leisurely walk down Main Street, U.S.A., snap some Disney PhotoPass photos, and get excited for your daughter's magical morning. If you're planning to meet Ariel at her Grotto or ride Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid after your appointment, I recommend booking your Lightning Lane return time no earlier than 10:30 AM. Your appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique can take around 90 minutes from check-in to choosing your package, to completing the transformation, so reserving a Lightning Lane around 10:30 AM will give you until 11:30 AM to return to the attraction, so you won't have to rush and can enjoy your experience without the stress of wondering if you'll make it to your next destination on time. 

    I hope this answers your question, Julia, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
