    Hi Mom's and Dad, thank you for the great advice so far. My new ?? is that we arrive in Orlando at 2:27pm and have a dining reservation at Le Cellier at 5:55pm, will we have enough time to get to the resort, check in and make it to our reservation??

    Hi Pam,

    This is a tough question. It really depends on the following:

    1. Will your plane arrive on time? The time of day is not usually busy at the airport but with weather you never know.

    2. How are you getting to your resort? If it is Magical Express or renting a car, it may take longer. Car service might be the quickest way as the car is there waiting to load your luggage and take you directly to your resort. Magical Express will stop at other resorts, and you may not be the first one. At this time of day it is about a 30 to 40 minute ride. To save time with the rental car, have one person go ahead to the rental car desk while the other waits for the luggage.

    3. Which resort are you staying at? If you are staying at Yacht and Beach Club, the Boardwalk, Swan or the Dolphin, you will have no problem as it is a quick boat ride or walk to EPCOT through the International Gateway to Canada. Any other resort will put you at the front of the park, and you will need to walk through EPCOT.

    If everything works, you will make it to your Advance Dining Reservation. You may want to push it back an hour just to be sure. Finally, if you are on Magical Express, you could go to your resort, skip check in and hop on a bus to EPCOT.

    I hope this helps and have a wonderful trip!
