    On check out day, we have reservations for 10:55am at chef mickey. We fly out at 4:05pm, and I am reading you need to be back at your hotel (ASMovies) 3 hrs prior for the transport to the airport. Will we have enough time to eat and make it back by 1:05?

    Hello, Casandra!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  It is so awesome to hear from you again!

    You are correct that Disney's Magical Express will pick you up from Disney's All-Star Movies Resort three hours prior to your plane flight. I would say that your entire dining experience at Chef Mickey's will take you a little over an hour to eat and meet all of your favorite Disney Characters.  That would mean you would be leaving Disney's Contemporary Resort around 11:00 am.  

    You will then need to walk (briskly) over to Magic Kingdom to catch a bus back over to Disney's All-Star Movies Resort.  (I would not take the Monorail because it will take longer than just walking back to Magic Kingdom.) That would put you waiting for the bus at approximately 11:15 am. You will then have 50 minutes to travel back to your resort, retrieve your bags, and wait for Disney's Magical Express.

    Based on these time factors, it COULD be done, but I have to be honest and tell you the time will be tight. To be safe, that would mean the buses would need to be running on time, and that you are able to easily grab your luggage from storage. If you want to be truly safe, you can always take a cab back to your resort. If you think time is tight, a Cast Member at Disney's Contemporary Resort can call a cab for you.

    If you have other questions, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
