    WAS WONDERING if a reserv at Swan Hotel Garden Cove at 5:30 would give us enough time to get back for a 700 fantsmic light show? I heard there is a ferry long is this ride and how long would you guess for the sit down meal?

    Hi Kandi,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There is a boat that travels from Disney's Hollywood Studios to the Swan and Dolphin hotels. I usually plan for it to take about 30 minutes. The travel time is short, but you do need to wait for it, which can take a little while.

    If you have a 5:30 dining reservation, and want to get back to the park for a 7pm show, I think you would be cutting it close. You'll need to line up for Fantasmic, and won't want to hurry through dinner. I'd recommend an earlier dining time.

    Have a great vacation!
