    We have a dining reservation-Storybook Dining at Artist Point @8:15pm the night we arrive. Our flight gets in @ 5:45pm. We're staying at the villas at Wilderness Lodge. If we hop on the Magical Express, Do you think we'll make our 8:15 slot?

    Hi Kelly!

    I'm so happy to help you get ready for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, which is coming up! You will love staying at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. With its amazing Guest rooms, fantastic dining options, convenient location and tranquil and relaxing atmosphere, this will be a perfect vacation "home" and getaway from the theme parks.

    Disney's Magical Express is the perfect way to start your Walt Disney World Resort vacation because it makes it so easy to start your trip. When I plan the itinerary for the start of a vacation, I allow three hours between the time my flight lands and when I will be at my Disney Resort hotel and ready to start my first activity. This allows plenty of time to get through the airport, wait for the bus to depart, navigate through traffic along the journey and stop at other Disney Resort hotels along the way. In my experience, I have found that the trip can be faster based on a variety of factors, such as if I am traveling without my kids and the time of day and day of the week I'm traveling.

    So I think you have a good chance of making your 8:15 p.m. reservation at Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White. Keep in mind that if you have flight delays, heavy traffic or anticipate a longer time getting through the airport, you may want to try to move your reservation later in the evening. I would recommend that you plan on taking advantage of the Disney's Magical Express luggage service to help make your trip through the airport as quick as possible. Also, be sure to take advantage of Online Check-In to make the start of your trip as quick as possible!

    Let us know if you have any additional questions as you finalize the plans for your magical vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
