    Hi Darcie! This panel is fantastic! Question about the parade at AK - do you think we'd have time to see the afternoon parade and make it back to Beach Club for a 5:15 ADR at Cape May (via Disney bus)? Thanks so much!

    Thanks so much for your kind words about the Moms Panel, Sabrina; we appreciate it!  As for your question, you're cutting it close.  Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade starts at 3:45 and lasts about fifteen minutes.  I can also tell you that the walkways get especially congested at Animal Kingdom during the parade, meaning it's a bit harder to make a quick exit.  Assuming you can get out relatively quickly, though, (by 4:10, let's say) that leaves you just over an hour to get to the Beach Club.  You could luck out and have a short wait for the bus, but then again, you might have to wait fifteen or twenty minutes.  Let's say that puts us at 4:30.  The actual trip to the Beach Club via bus should take you about thirty minutes.  We're at five o'clock now.  Assuming you really high-tail it from the bus stop at the Beach Club into the resort and over to Cape May, you technically could make it.  It's a bit close for comfort, but if you're up for the challenge, I say that yes, you probably could make it.  No lolly-gagging though!  Enjoy your trip.
