Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • We have 12:15 reservations at Cinderella's Castle. The only Bippity boppity botique reservation avail was 10:30 in Downtown Disney. If we take a taxi and arrive a little early will this be enough time to get back to MK & the castle?

  • Hi, Sara! The Walt Disney World website says that your princess' transformation will take 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the package selected. There are no guarantees that they would be able to take you early.  You should be finished at Downtown Disney around 11:30 at the latest. That only gives you 45 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom and inside to the castle.  It will be VERY close.  If you take a taxi to the Ticket and Transportation Center and then the monorail or ferry, you can expect it to take 40 minutes from Downtown Disney.  That estimate is if you don't get in a traffic jam and are able to get transportation right away at both the taxi stand and the TTC.  Even after that, you still have to get through the entrance gates and to the Castle.  I don't think I would chance losing that Castle reservation and the money you spent to get it.  I would keep calling Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and checking for earlier times at either location.  Sending pixie-dusted wishes your way that you are able to get an earlier time with the Fairy Godmothers-in-Training.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
