    ADR at Boma at 4:30 on our last day. Flight leaves at 8:35 p.m. Can we catch ME to airport from AKL rather than transfering back to our own resort (POR) to save time? If not, will we be able to make it work with these times?


    No, you cannot catch the Magical Express bus from anywhere but your own resort. That is a pretty hard and fast rule.

    As for your question about dining and getting back in time, It seems impossible for you to eat and get back in time. Typically your Magical Express bus time will be around 3 hours before your scheduled flight time. That means that your bus time will probably be scheduled for around 5:30 pm. I don't see any way that you are going to eat, and then take a series of buses back to the Port Orleans resort in time.

    One alternative option is to take a cab back from the Animal Kingdom Lodge to Port Orleans, but that is also still going to call it close. Since I try to always give an hour for dining, I just don't see that working either. 

    If it were me, I would look to move the Boma meal to another day in my trip. Or eat at the similar Tusker House (Animal Kingdom Park) at more of a lunch time.

    Boma is a great meal, but not worth missing your flight over!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
