Okay so I just mapquested the route from my hotel (Seralago Suites Main Gate east act. 3 miles from wdw) to Animal Kingdom(our first park) it gave me a drive time of 16 minutes. But I know with traffic thats not true, however I dont want to show up with a 5 year old an hour before the park will even open. Ive been told to leave my hotel an hour to an hour and half before the parks open. I do want to get their in time for the opening show. so can anyone give me some advice? Is one hour reasonable? or not enough? or too soon?
