    If walking to MK from BLT for EEstarting at 8;30, what time should we leave hotel?

    Hi Sally from Florida! 

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I love the energy of this question. It gives, "We are doing alllll of the things" vibes with a bright and Early Entry into Magic Kingdom Park from Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. I can feel it from here and I'm excited to help you get this plan down pat

    This early-morning stroll is very easy. You basically walk along the parking lot, use the crosswalk on World Drive, continue for about five minutes, and you are there! If you add in the security check, I would estimate about twenty minutes. Even with the very smallest Mouseketeers, this is a very convenient way to begin the morning. 

    I should warn you that I tend to be a person who is always running a little behind. With that said, I would plan to leave my Resort hotel room by 8 am at the latest, but the goal would be 7:45 am. Of course, this means I would tell my teen and tween that we are walking out the door at 7:30, just to make sure it happens.  (Is this not how everyone plans? Why can't anyone ever find their shoes when it's time to go?) 

    Since you are staying at our Disney Vacation Club Home Resort, I wanted to give you a quick extra tip: if you are ready for some true comfort food after a busy day, Contempo Cafe offers one of my favorite Quick Service dining options at Walt Disney World Resort. They have...wait for it...Four Cheese Grilled Cheese and Tomato-Basil Soup! YUM! Since they are open until 11 pm most nights, I have been known to place a late-night Mobile Order and head over in my comfy clothes. I grab that brown paper bag and head back to munch on the balcony. It's amazing. I highly recommend it! 

    I hope that is helpful, Sally! Have the very best vacation!

    With many magical memories,

    - Also Sally (but from Georgia!)
