    Booking a flight to leave Orlando at 6pm. I know i have to leave hotel 3 hours prior to flight time. Do we have time to go to a park in the morning for a few hours, shuttle back to hotel and then shuttle to airport or do you think that is too much?

    Hi Valerie,

    Yes, you will certainly have time to visit one of the Disney theme parks on your day of departure. You may as well squeeze as much magic as possible out of the last day of your vacation.  Just plan to be at the theme park of your choice at opening time.  Enjoy the attractions there for a few hours and have some lunch.  Then head back to your resort no later than 1:30 pm.  You don't want to miss your Magical Express bus to Orlando International Airport around 3 pm.  My family has followed a plan just like this on many occasions and it has worked quite nicely.

    Wishing you and your family a magical vacation!  Thanks for posting your question to the Moms Panel.
