    We are visiting WDW for the first time in September. We have 3 girls (6, 4, and 1). If we have dinner reservations at 4:40 at 1900 Park Fare, would we be able to watch the Jungle Parade at Animal Kingdom and make the commute in time to get there?

    Unfortunately, you won't have time to view the parade and make it to your dinner reservations on time.  With a 4:00 start time for the parade, you have to allow at least a good twenty minutes to view the whole thing, and that is if you grab a seat at the very beginning of the parade route (Harambe, Africa).  If you are using Disney transportation you should allow for a 30 minute bus ride.  Of course you'll also want to add in ten or so minutes wait time should the bus not be immediately available for boarding.  With those assumptions in place, at best you won't make it to 1900 Park Fare until around 5:00.

    I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news here, but this scenario just isn't feasible no matter how you slice it.  Perhaps you can move your reservation time back a bit.  I would aim for a 5:30 reservation to be on the safe side.  Otherwise, I would arrange to see the Jammin' Jungle Parade on another afternoon.  Good luck!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
