    1st trip to WDW in 37 days! ? is we have res at BBB in DD for DD3 and DD5 at 5:30 and tix for MNSSHP same day. Will we have time to get to MK by 7 if we take costumes to BBB and change there? What is best and quickest way to get to MK from DD? Thx!!

    I did something very similar last year. My three daughters had a 4:30 Downtown Disney Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation and then we had tickets for the 7:00 Pirate & Princess Party at the Magic Kingdom. We thought everything was going to be fine until we learned that the BBB was running about an hour late, by the time two of my daughters got into a chair, it was 5:30 and the third was seated at 5:45. Once you're in the Fairy-Godmother-in-Training's hands, the makeover takes about half an hour. So we were all done at 6:15. (There is a large ladies room quite near the BBB where you could change.)

    There is no direct Disney transportation from Downtown Disney to the theme parks. So, what you need to do is get yourself to a resort that is close to the Magic Kingdom. I would get on a bus from DD headed to the Polynesian or Grand Floridian. From there, you'll transfer to the monorail to the MK. When we did this, we ended up arriving at the Party at about 7:15.

    So, the upshot for you is that if your appointment is on time, you'll probably be OK. If they're running very late, then you could be in trouble. Here are some things I would do:

    - Call 407-WDW-STYLE and see if you can move your appointment a bit earlier. (However, I'm guessing this is unlikely.)
    - Try to arrive for your appointment quite early. If another customer is delayed, maybe they can work you in early.
    - Call to confirm that your girls are scheduled to be seen simultaneously and not sequentially. If you're waiting until one girl is done before the second starts, you'll likely end up being fairly late for the Halloween party.

    Good luck!
