    Hi! We arrive on January 28 at 12:55 p.m. We will take the magical express to our hotel (Port Orleans Riverside) with our luggage. Question - will we make a reservation at 4:30 p.m. at 1900 Park Fare? We can check in to hotel after if needed. Thanks!

    Hi Ashley-Dawn,

    Kicking off your vacation at 1900 Park Fare with a delicious and royal dinner with Cinderella and Prince Charming sounds like a wonderful idea! My family absolutely loved dining there!

    I'm happy to let you know that as long as everything runs smoothly, you should be able to make your dining reservation! I usually plan on about 15-20 minutes to walk to Disney's Magical Express from my flight, about 30 minutes to check-in and wait for a full bus before we depart, and a 45-60 minute drive to my Resort hotel. Of course, all of that may vary depending on current crowd levels, traffic, and how many stops the driver needs to make. Once you arrive at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, I'd encourage you to drop your bags off with Bell Services and head back out to catch a bus to Magic Kingdom Park. From there, you'll want to take the Resort monorail to get to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, where you'll find 1900 Park Fare on the first floor. If your flight is delayed, you have traffic issues, or have some other kind of a delay along the way, you could always use the Lyft app to take a stylish Minnie Van from your Resort hotel to your dinner, which will save you quite a bit of time!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley-Dawn, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your visit. Enjoy your dinner at 1900 Park Fare, and please give Cinderella a hug from me. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
