    We're 92 days out and I'm still on the fence as to whether or not we could make it in time to the HDDR for the 7:30 show if we are arriving at the airport at 4pm. I know they want you to be there like 45 minutes prior to the show....HELP!!!

    Hello Suzanne! Not to cut another 15 minutes off your schedule but unless the times have changed, the show times are actually 5:00, 7:15 and 9:30 p.m. 

    You didn't mention if you'll be using Magical Express but regardless, although it will be tight, you may have enough time.  I like to budget 90 minutes for Magical Express.  Hopefully you won't need all that time but if all goes well, you should be at your resort no later than 5:30.

    You may also want to consider using online check-in.  By doing this, you will significantly speed up the check-in process when you arrive to your resort.  I can't tell based on your question where you are actually staying.  If you are staying where it's an easy commute to Fort Wilderness, I would say go ahead and use Disney Transportation.  But if you are staying elsewhere, because your timing is close, you may want to consider taking a taxi to Fort Wilderness.

    You also have the option for the 9:30 show or scheduling for another night.

    Good luck!  Diane  :)
