    Thank u for all ur help! I love this panel! Want to surprise my family w/ reservation to tomorrowland terrace dessert party for our last night at WDW. Any ideas? Have reserv. at Fulton's at 7pm, TTDP at 9:05pm...will we be able to make it on time to MK?

    Hi, Becca!

    I love when a guest has plans, but I hate when I have to say that it just might not work out.  Fulton's, located in Downtown Disney, is a lovely restaurant and I just do not think it is a meal you will want to rush through. So let's just say you go "sort of quick" through dinner and get out at 8:15, assuming that your are seated on time.   You will then need to walk to the bus area and wait for the next bus (up to 30 minutes by the time you walk/wait).  You will have to take a bus to Contemporary, as buses do not run directly from Downtown Disney to the Magic Kingdom.  You now have another 15 minute walk from Contemporary.  Now it is 9pm or close to, and you have to work your way up Main Street when the crowds are out for the parade and fireworks.  I'm so sorry, but I just don't think it is doable, at least not unless you love to rush like crazy.

    Now I do not know the time for Wishes! that night (guessing 10pm), but here is another suggestion:  How about after dinner, take a taxi over to the Polynesian.  Head to the beach, grab a chair and watch the fun Electric Water Pageant and Wishes while lounging on beach - no rushing required!

    Another fun option?  Stay in Downtown Disney and head  up on Characters in Flight just when Wishes is about to start and watch the awesome fireworks from 400 feet over Village Lake - you will love the view!

    So many options, I hope you find one that works for you!   Good luck!
