    We are driving to WDW & my mom is flying down to meet us. We'll get there around 10am to check in & get our KTTW. Her flight arrives @ 9:15am and will be taking the Magic Express to AoA. Will we make a 12:30 resi at Biergarten in time if we driv

    Hi Julie,
    It should work!

    Unless your mom's flight experiences significant delays, your plans to dine at Biergarten in Epcot's Germany pavilion will work out fine.

    Once your mom's flight lands, it'll take 40-90 minutes for her to arrive the resort. This all depends on how quickly she is assigned to a bus, when it departs, plus at least 35 minutes travel time (longer if her bus goes to other resorts first). I've always found that from the time that our plane touches down until we are at the resort is 90 minutes or less. If she's running on the later side, I would just be ready to hop in the car over to Epcot as soon as she arrives!

    From the Art of Animation resort to Epcot is only about a 10 minute drive. From the entrance to Epcot to Germany in World Showcase, figure a 20-30 minute walk.

    If you think of anything else that I can help with, just let me know. Have fun!
