    Have 8:05 ADR at CP; MK opens 9am. Will we be out before rope drop? Where do you wait if we are done before RD? What would be the best path from there to get to Rapunzel meet n greet, do we go through the castle or around it? Thank you!

    Hi there Kari!

    Sounds like you have a great plan going! I know that most breakfasts tend to take a little longer than planned, I guess cause everyone is just waking up? This is specialy true with the character breakfasts! Waiting for Pooh and friends to come by you table will take some time. I think you may have to miss the rope drop just because of the amount of time required at Crystal Palace. Now you could have members of your family attend while some stay at the restaurant? I think it would just be easier to head over to Rapunzel instead of the rope drop after dining.

    Rapunzel's meet and greet area is to the right side of Cinderella's Castle where Belle's Storybook time used to be. So there is no need to go through the Castle. The Rapunzel experience at the Magic Kingdom offers personal interaction and involves some story time and drawing (Rapunzel's favorite pastime)! When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom in the morning check the times guide of when the first meet and greet is. When we were there in early December, the first experience started at 10am. You will want to be one of the first in line for the interactive experience because, the first 10 -20 children get a little extra time with Rapunzel and Flynn. I won't spoil the surprise but have your camera ready!

    All of this information is subject to change so when you arrive at the parks, make sure to pick up a Times Guide where you will find all the character meet and greets scheduled for the day. I hope you and your family have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have more questions, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
