    Taking our kids for the marshmallow roast but really wanted to eat at Whispering Canyon. I made the ADR too late I think. Do they show up closer to 7 or 8? We'd be going Sep 20.

    We haven't done it, but the WDW website here shows the time as 8:00 PM, so you should be pretty good. With an hour to eat and a half hour to catch a boat and bus over there it should be close but still work out pretty well. Enjoy!

    Is it a boat ride away? I thought it was near/in the WL and then I heard it was a few minutes walk to the campground.

    Yes, you'd have to take the boat. The walk is not lighted and it's not close.

    If I were you, I'd either change my reservation to much earlier, get a reservation at Trails End at FW instead, or just eat at Roaring Forks in WL before going to the Campfire.

    From WL to FW, you would have 3 options:

    1. Boat
    2. Bus
    3. Walk

    Once you get to FW, you will need to either walk or take an internal bus to the Meadows Trading Post. The walk is about 15-20 minutes.

    It would be very close if you made it. It is highly unlikely you will get seated at WCC at your time and then by the time you eat and get there, I agree with HM, I would change it.

    I would not walk it after dark, and the boat can be slow.

    Thanks everyone. I've decided to go a day earlier to the sing-a-long. I'd hate to miss it but I don't want to rush through an expensive meal either. Since it was brought up, do they often lag far behind in the reserved times? I USUALLY don't have to wait far beyond our reserved time.
