    Have dinner reservations at Akerhaus at 5:10 pm on day of our arrival. We arrive on Sat. 9/15 at 10:52 am & plan to use Magical Express. Staying at CR & taking monorail there. Worried about time; will we be ok to make it? Only night we could do A

    It's great to hEAR from you again, Brandy!  Disney's Contemporary Resort is one of my favorite resorts at Walt Disney World!  We are Disney Vacation Members and Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is our "home resort."  You are going to love having the convenience of utilizing the monorail to Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and the other Magic Kingdom Resorts. For me, it does not get any better than being able to walk to Magic Kingdom from the Contemporary Resort!  Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is a great choice for your first night in the "Happiest Place on Earth!"  Disney's Magical Express service will collect your luggage and deliver it directly to your Walt Disney World hotel room within 3 hours after you check in at the resort. When my family utilized Magical Express in May, we were at our Disney Resort within 45 minutes after boarding our motorcoach at Orlando International Airport. I was thoroughly impressed with how quickly and seamlessly the entire process went for us. I definitely think you will easily make your Advanced Dining Reservation at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in time. My only recommendation would be to pack a carry on bag with any "must have" essentials for your dinner at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. However, I don't foresee your luggage not making it to your Resort within ample time for getting ready for dinner. I just like to always err on the side of caution. I hope this information helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. It is my pleasure to assist you with all of your Walt Disney World Vacation planning questions!  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Brandy!
    Happy Travels,
