    Will be in MK on Sept. 27. Have a 5:10 reservation at Ohana's at the Poly. Will we have time to eat and get back to MK for the 8:00 parade and get good seats? Parade is a must for the little ones. They are 4 & 5. We want to get them a good view.THAN

    Hi Carlene,

    I think you'll be absolutely fine. Dinner at Ohana will likely take between an hour and an hour and a half, so at the very worst you'll be done at 6:40. It should only take you about 15 minutes to get from the Polynesian to the Magic Kingdom via the monorail. Let's say it takes 5 minutes to get through security. This puts you inside the park at 7:00 p.m.

    I just checked the Crowd Calendar at the independent website They're estimating very low crowds on September 27 - a level 2 on a scale of 1 to 10. On a low crowd day such as this, getting to the park an hour before parade time should be more than enough time. You'll likely be able to get curbside viewing right on the middle of Main Street at this time.
