    DM and I arrive at 341 we will be using ME and staying at POFQ. Is there enough time to make 630 res at Yachstman?

    Hi Ellen! You sound like my kind of traveler -- starting your Disney vacation off with fine dining at one of the signature restaurants! What a great beginning to your trip! 

    I think you're cutting it close with the time, though, and I'd recommend you push your dinner reservation back to 7:30 p.m. or later.  When using the Magical Express, a good rule of thumb is to allot 3 hours from the time your flight arrives until you're in your hotel room. The actual time may turn out to be quicker, but you want to be prepared for possible delays. Afternoon flights can run behind schedule, you may have to wait for the Magical Express motor coach, and then wait while other guests are dropped off at their resorts, and then wait in line to check in to your resort. Also, the trip from Port Orleans French Quarter to the Yacht Club using Disney transportation could take up to one hour. Based on all of these factors, a later reservation would enable you to check in and freshen up before heading to dinner without feeling like you're frantically scrambling to make your reservation time.

    Hope you have a wonderful meal at the Yachtsman and a great trip!
