    Our airline changed our flight so we are now arriving at 4pm. We have reservations 5:50 at a restaurant at the Grand Floridian (we are staying elsewhere on property). Will we make this reservation? Can I go straight to the restaurant on magical express?

    Hi Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thanks for stopping by with your question today.   I always tell friends and family members to allow about 60-90 minutes from the time you exit the airplane until the time you are checking into your Disney Resort hotel.   It may be a little faster but I always like to plan wiggle room.     Disney's Magical Express will only be able to transport you to the Disney Resort hotel that you have a reservation at.   When you arrive after you check in you would need to utilize another form of  transportation to reach your dining reservation at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort.    If I were you I would look into rescheduling your dinner at around  7:30 PM  so that you are not rushed when you arrive and can take in all the magic around you.

    Melissa, please let us know if we can answer any other questions you may have about your upcoming adventure.    We love to help Guests have the most magical time possible while on a Disney Parks vacation.

    Have a Tiggerific Day,
