    Nicole from MI Asked

    We have a BBB reservation at 5:10 pm, and a Be Our Guest reservation at 5:40 pm the same night. Will they hold our reservation if we run late, or will BBB take us a few minutes early?

    Dear Nicole,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning your fun-filled day at the Magic Kingdom!

    I would say that unfortunately those two reservations sound a bit too close for comfort for my liking. By that time of day, it is possible for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to be running a bit behind schedule and you definitely do not want to feel rushed for your prince or princess makeover experience. It is unlikely that they would be able to take you earlier than your scheduled time, unless someone else is a no-show. 

    As for your Advanced Dining Reservation, there is a tiny bit of leeway with arrival, but more than a few minutes late will cause you to lose your reservation, which would be such a bummer! In addition, they will charge you a no-show fee for that reservation, which would put a damper on your experience as well.

    Honestly, if I was you, I would cancel or modify one of those reservations, because I would much rather have a calm and relaxed experience with one or the other, than to have a rushed experience that ends in disappointment. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
