    I plan on eating at the Aria dinner buffet prior to the 9:30 pm KA Show at MGM. How much time would you give for this to be a workable combination? Anyone done these two in conjunction with each other before? Otherwise just wondering how long it will take to get from inside Aria to MGM at a fairly leisurely pace?

    Any input/feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would start the dinner buffet no later than 7:00pm if it were me. Gives me about 1.5 hours to eat and have desert, making it around 8:30 to start heading towards MGM. The theater for KA is away from the strip some, but it doesnt take long to get ushered to your seat. You'd be in your seat by 9:10-9:15, plenty of time for the start.

    Starting dinner after 7pm and you're going to start to feel rushed IMO

    Using my pedometer program its about a 0.9 miles walk from the Aria buffet to the KA theater.

    A slow walking speed would be 1.5-2.5 miles per hour.

    Then factoring in that you would probably be going slower while in Aria's and MGM's casinos and maybe some congestion on the sidewalk/overpass I would be thinking of allocating 40-45 minutes for the walk from the Aria buffet to MGM's KA theater.

    6:30 at the latest for me. You might have to wait to get in the buffet. I'd be over to the MGM by 9:00 for a pre theater cocktail. No need to rush when you're on vacation.

    I would eat at 6 or 6:30. You gotta have time to take a nap and evacuate the belly, if necessary. Plus, you don't want to have to feel like the meal itself is rushed.

    Probably around 6:30 to leave a good amount of time to wait in line, pay, eat, dessert, digest then go for a nice stroll/brisk walk and digest even more and make it to your show with ample time to not feel rushed.

    When heading to a show I would rather leave with plenty of time.
    For example I would leave no later than 8:30 (maybe even 8:15) for the 9:30 show.

    Take your time walking.
    Make it to the casino, play some games, enjoy a drink or two with plenty of time to spare.
