    HI, the only avaliable time for dinning in Akershus in Epcot was our last day in WD!and the reservation is at 2;45 and our flight back home is at 7:40, Do you think we will be able to do it?Thank you

    Hi, Ali!  Okay, I have a question back before I can answer for certain.  Are you using Disney's Magical Express for your trip back to the airport?  If you are, you will have to be prepared to leave on your shuttle approximately three hours prior to the flight time, so you'll have to be at the shuttle stop probably around 4:40.  I would allow at least an hour to enjoy your meal at Akershus, and then hustle right back to your resort to catch your shuttle.

    To help expedite things, if you are flying a participating airline, you can check your bags 12 hour prior to your flight at your resort.  So, when you get up in the morning, pack everything to be ready to go, and then go ahead and check it in, so it will head right to the airport and be routed to your flight.  If you have carry-on bags, you can leave those at bell services.  Then, when you arrive back after your lunch, you just have to pop in to grab your carry-on bags, and you're ready to go!

    I think you can do it, you just have to be very mindful of your time while dining.  It would give you one last wonderful memory of your vacation!
