    I'm familiar with both resorts and have carefully examined the floor plans. We'll have a car as well as monorail passes, but I'm thinking the fastest way would be to walk.

    Is the west wing exit a viable option to reach the sidewalk on Las Vegas Blvd?

    Can anyone confirm a Miracle Mile entrance on Harmon St? The floor plan indicates one (but I don't remember it) and it's close to the Saxe Theater.

    We have KA tickets for a show that ends at 8:30 and Vegas! The Show tickets for 9pm. If it was just us, I'd leave KA a few minutes early. I know we'll have to hustle and I hope not to miss the beginning of Vegas! The Show (first timers with us.)

    I appreciate any help or suggestions!

    On Google Maps it looks like there's an entrance on Harmon St.

    Another option, and I haven't done this myself, but I know it's been discussed before... but you could exit KA theater and walk towards the Signature, exit out of Tower 3. That should put you right on Harmon. I'm not sure if that will save you any time compared to heading out of the West Wing exit. You'll hit a few people movers and it should be less crowded overall vs. walking the strip.

    When I stayed at the Sig, you needed a room key to access hallway to the Sig. Not that there wouldn't be folks headed that way but that seems like a longer route to take to get to MMM than exiting from the West Wing and hoofing it down the strip. Cross over Harmon next to the Harley Davidson Cafe and then down past the Walgreens into the side entrance on Harmon. Turn right when you hit the main mall loop.

    That's what I was hoping. Thank you!

    I was wondering if it was possible to get through, but afraid to take that chance without testing the route first. Thank you!

    Like Snidely said, might need a room key, when I stayed there people were in and out constantly. But with no experience taking that route, I don't want to steer you the wrong way, especially when you're tight on time.

    Use the Strip, you can make it without any trouble (you do need to walk fast).

    Can you still take the "secret hallway" through the West Wing? That might save you a minute or two.
