    Hello again Jodie:) What time will Magic Express take us back to MCO if our departure flight is at 3pm? Hoping to have late breakfast at Chef Mickey -what time will work well so we can enjoy the meal without rushing. Thank you so much!

    It's great to hear from you again, Jessica!  You are going to love Disney's complimentary airport service, Disney's Magical Express!  I used Disney's Magical Express for the first time last month and can honestly say the entire process was seamless and such a huge convenience!  According to the official Disney's Magical Express webpage, your motor coach pick-up time will be approximately three hours prior to your flight departure time for domestic flights.  I would estimate your pick-up time to be around noon.  The day before you check out, you will receive a transportation notice advising you of your motorcoach pick-up time. Chef Mickey's is one of my family's favorite Character Dining Experiences!  I would recommend booking an Advanced DIning Reservation no later than 9:15 - 9:30 a.m. to allow yourself ample time to enjoy your breakfast and also have time to gather your belongings before your scheduled pick-up. On our past visits to Chef Mickey's, we have never been seated right at our Advanced DIning Reservation time. They will also take a family photo before seating you at your table.  I have always found our entire experience at Chef Mickey's to take approximately 1 1/2 - 2 hours.  We always like to visit the gift shop one last time before leaving our Disney Resort. When making your Advanced Dining Reservation, you may also want to factor in time for any last minute purchases or "loose ends" that may need attending to and plan accordingly. I hope this information helps! Please feel free to write me back with any additional questions, Jessica!
    Happy Planning,
