    Arrive in Orlando at 1:38pm, taking Magic Express to the Wilderness Lodge. Will I be able to make it to Mama Melrose's for a 5:55pm reservation?

    Assuming that your flight is on time and that Magical Express takes care of your bags for you, then I think you'll be OK. I generally tell people to leave two hours to get from the airport to their hotel when taking Magical Express. It often takes much less than that, but I like to err on the side of caution. Let's say, worst case scenario, you get to the Wilderness Lodge at 4:00 (again, it will likely be much earlier than this). You take 45 minutes to check in, drop your carry-on bags in your room, and freshen up a bit. Then you're at the Wilderness Lodge bus stop in the 4:45- 5:00 range. An hour should be just about the right amount of time for you to get from the WL and into Disney's Hollywood Studios. Even with some big buffer time built in, you'll still make your dinner.

    Buono Appetite!
