    Just 11 days till our trip and our flight time was changed by the carrier. We are landing at 9:30 am and staying at PO Riverside. We have ADR for CRT for 11:55- Do you think we will make it?

    Hi, Heather!

    I usually like to allow three hours from the time you land until a dining reservation.  However, you are going during a slower time of the year, so hopefully you will be OK.   However, try to call (407)WDW-DINE to see if they can push you to 12:15 OR 12:30.  If not, no worries - just follow some steps....

    -Start NOW by completing your online check-in.

    -Before you land, have everyone take a quick restroom break.  This way you can head off the plane and straight to B Side/Level 1 for your Magical Express motorcoach.  Have your transportation vouchers out and waiting so you can board the bus promptly. 

    -Once you arrive at Riverside, go to the Online Check-in line.  Grab your goodies and head straight to the bus for the Magic Kingdom.  You can check-out your room when you get back. If you room is not ready, leave your cell number and you will get a text when your room becomes available. 

    -The bus will drop you at the front gates of the Magic Kingdom.  No time to shop, just walk directly to the beautiful Cinderella Castle for your reservation.

    -Whew!  It's 11:55.  NOW you can relax!  Have a magical vacation in Walt Disney World.
