    I want to make a dinner reservation for the night we arrive. Plane lands around 3 pm and we are taking DME to Poly. Considering Chef Mickey, Ohana, others. what time would we be able to make it to, and what if our flight is delayed and we can't make it?

    Hi Erin,

    My family always plans to explore the Disney resort we will call home on the first night of our vacations.  Therefore, I think 'Ohana would be a fabulous choice for dinner on the first night of your trip.  If you don't mind a later dinner, I think 7 pm would be a safe bet for your reservation time.  That will give you plenty of time to catch your Disney's Magical Express bus at Orlando International Airport, ride over to Walt Disney World, and settle in to your hotel room.  It will also give you a little buffer in case of a slight delay.

    If your flight is cancelled, however, you should call (407) WDW-DINE as soon as you know that you will not make your dinner reservation.  Although you could be assessed a $10 per person fee for calling less than 24 hours in advance of your reservation to cancel, several Cast Members have assured me that they will work with guests when they encounter unforeseen travel problems like cancelled flights.   

    Sending you pixie dust for a magical Disney vacation!
