    I have a 7 o'clock dinner that will probably last two hours at Picasso but have tickets to see KA at MGM Grand at 9:30. Should I walk or take a Uber/cab?

    I also vote Uber/Lyft. It can be a bit of a hike plus you'll have to negotiate the crowds.

    I would tell your wait staff at Picasso that you have the show tickets and they will help ensure you are out of there on time.

    It's my understanding that you have to wait for the uber driver to arrive. I know that uber and Lyft are the second coming of Christ, but in this instance you should spring for a taxi. You don't really have much time to spare.

    You can order an Uber/Lyft from your table or while walking through the casino to the pickup area. Could save you time vs. waiting in line for a taxi.

    Personally I would cab it. There's always a line of them ready to go at the valet and the cost of that trip would probably be $10, $15 with a tip. More than Uber but a pittance for the peace of mind to know you'll be there on time.

    If your dinner lets out early just catch the tram to MC and it's an easy walk to the bridge over LVB to MGM, though it's still a bit of a walk to the theater once you get in MGM.

    My wife and I hoofed it from B to MGM and did it quickly. We trammed to MC and did a brisk walk, not stroll, from MC past NYNY over the bridge and into MGM. I thought we were going to be late but we had plenty of time to spare.

    Peeps were probably wondering if we were trying to get away from somebody or rushing to get to our favorite slot machine so nobody else could but who cares what people think?

    I was sweating a bit once we arrived but we arrived and weren't late.

    We NEVER, evet book a fancy dinner and a show on the same night. Seriously, a dinner at Picasso is to be savred, not rushed because of a show.

    agree with @queuetee ,
    for the 9:30 show, you normally should arrive before 9:15.
    And you need at least 5 minutes inside MGM grand.
    I don't think you have much time to spare, no matter taxi or uber.
