    HI! We arrive at Orlando airport at 12:40. I have made a reservation at T-REX for 4 pm ( only time I could get) Will I have enough time between traveling to our resort, checking in at our Hotel ( POFQ) and taking the boat to DownTown Disney?

    Hi Amber!

        Based on my experience, you should be able to to make it to the T-Rex Restaurant at Downtown Disney by 4:00 pm using the transportation plan that you outlined in your question, but it will be a tight timeline.  If you land at 12:40 pm at the Orlando International Airport and you are utilizing Magical Express to transport you to Port Orleans French Quarter, it will take you on average 1 to 2 hours to get to your Resort (this time estimate includes getting from the gate to Magical Express, waiting in line for your bus, and the travel time to your Resort).  This would put you at French Quarter between 1:40 pm to 2:40 pm.  Then there is 30 to 60 min to check in and put your things into your room, so estimating the maximum of 60 minutes this puts you between 2:40 pm to 3:40 pm.  Lastly, there is the boat ride from French Quarter to Downtown Disney which can be 20 to 30 minutes depending on how long you have to wait for a boat to come.  This puts you arriving in Downtown Disney between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm.  I hope that this helps!

    May you have a magical meal at the T-Rex Restaurant in Downtown Disney!  Make sure to watch out for Dinosaurs and Meteor Showers!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
