    Reservation for BBB at Disney Springs at 11:30 for 3 kids, and Lunch at Askershus 3:05. Any tips for what to do, maybe at Epcot prior to our reservations? This is in June. We're staying at OKW.

    Mousker Hey! Mousker Hi! Mousker Ho!

    Since I have yet to experience the Bibbidi Bobbidy Boutique with our daughters, I checked with my fellow Panelist and friend, Jen R., a frequent visitor to the enchanted beauty salon, for some timing advice. She shared with me that the charmed experience generally lasts just about 1-hour. So with three Princesses, I would estimate that you might be there for closer to an hour and a half.

    Assuming that you are planning to use the convenient and complimentary Walt Disney World Resort transportation, you will need to make a transfer at any Resort Hotel between leaving Disney Springs and arriving at Epcot. I would climb aboard a DVC Water Taxi and travel the tranquil waters of the Sassagoula River back to Disney's Old Key West Resort, simply because the stroll from the boat dock to the bus pickup area at the Hospitality House is rather short. Otherwise, you could board the first bus you see and take it to whichever Resort Hotel is it's final destination. It's a little fun to go somewhere unexpected! Once there, switch to a bus bound for Epcot. Plan about an hour for this journey.

    I would consider this the perfect opportunity for Character greetings and photographs! With your remaining hour before your tasty lunch at Akershus, you might consider a stop to Meet Disney Pals at the Epcot Character Spot. Then as you make your way around World Showcase to Norway, you could greet Daisy Duck just before the Mexico Pavillion and Donald Duck just beyond it. Then the very next pavilion is Norway. It should be perfect timing for your reservation!

    Please don't hesitate to stop back by if we can help you with anything else, Amanda!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
