    We are arriving at MCO at 2:10pm and staying at POP. What is the earliest you would recommend making dining reservations for that evening?

    Hello, Erin! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Thank you for submitting your question. I already love the way you think. It seems like you're a planner like us! 

    I'd suggest thinking about a dining reservation for 6:00 p.m. This timeframe will give you time to arrive at the Orlando International Airport, board the fantastic Disney's Magical Express, and check-in at Disney's Pop Century Resort. Since Disney Resort hotels have a check-in time of 3:00 p.m., you will also have time to shower and get ready for your first magical dinner of this trip!

    If your dinner is at a Disney Resort hotel like Disney's Riviera Resort, you will be able to use the Disney Skyliner to get there, for example. I'm anxious to have dinner at Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. I heard it's terrific! 

    If your dinner is inside a Theme Park, though, you may want to book a table for 6:30 p.m., since you will have to go through security and the automagic tapstiles

    I hope you have a fantastic time at Disney's Pop Century Resort this fall, dear Erin! If you have more questions before your trip is here, please don't hesitate to come back. We're here to help!

    May the magic be with you,
