    Hello to the best panel ever! Our flight arrives at MCO at 10:10 p.m. we will only have carry-on. Taking DME to Pop Century. Do you think we will have time to pick up dinner at Everything Pop at 11 p.m. if we use the new mobile ordering feature? Thank you!

    Hello, Suzi! Thanks for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort will be here before you know it, and I’m sure you’re excited! I wish I could tell you that you would have time to pick up a late dinner before Everything POP Shopping & Dining closes at 11 p.m., but I’m afraid you won’t be able to make it with a 10:10 arrival at Orlando International Airport. In my experience (even with carry-on luggage), you’ll want to give yourself at least two hours between the time you land in Orlando and the time you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel when using Disney's Magical Express. Sometimes the journey can take less than two hours, but sometimes it can take more. I would not count on arriving in your room at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, though, until midnight or slightly later.

    If you make it to your room before midnight, though, you can take advantage of pizza delivery through Disney Resorts In-Room Dining service. Just press the “In-Room Dining” button on the phone in your hotel room and place your order. The service does end at midnight at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, though, and you do need to be in your room to place an order. For those reasons, I would recommend bringing some snacks or sandwiches from home or possibly picking up something at Orlando International Airport before you board Disney’s Magical Express. 

    The next morning, you’ll be able to enjoy breakfast at Everything POP Shopping & Dining beginning at 7 a.m. With Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering available through your My Disney Experience mobile app, you can place your order before you leave your room and have it ready for pick-up when you arrive. (I recommend the Waffle Platter.)

    I hope one of these suggestions works for you, Suzi! Here’s wishing you a magical vacation.
