    We are arriving at Orl AP 11:50a on 10/25. Check into Poly then 2:05 lunch ADR at Crystal Palace. I know it is tight. Assuming flight on time- Are chances better to make the ADR with ME Bus or getting own bags and taking a taxi? If taxi- any idea $? Thanks

    Hi Cynthia! I like how you're not wasting any time starting your fun at Walt Disney World! You're right that you're cutting it close with a lunch reservation only two hours after your plane lands, but since cab fare from the airport could run you $65 or more, I recommend that you take the complimentary Magical Express. If you opted for a cab, you'd have to wait on your luggage at baggage claim so it may not end up being much faster than the Magical Express motorcoach. Let Magical Express fetch your luggage and deliver it to your room later. When your plane arrives, head directly to the Magical Express and, in a best case scenario, you'll be at the Polynesian by 1 p.m. or earlier. If your motorcoach stops at other resorts first, you may end up arriving thirty minutes later, but since the Crystal Palace isn't far from the Polynesian, you should still be able to make your lunch reservation. If you do arrive closer to 1:30 p.m., just hop on the monorail and head straight to the Crystal Palace for lunch and come back to check in at the Polynesian later in the day. If you have carry-on bags, you can have bell services hold them for you while you visit the park.
