    We (familyof 5) are flying in 3/29 at 6:50PM. Taking magical Expess(not going to parks this day) Should we make dinner ADR or wing it with the time we are arriving. And if we make ADR at say downtown Disney what time should we make them for? and where?

    Hi Shannon - I'm not sure where you are staying or how old your children are, but if I were you, I probably wouldn't make advance dining reservations for the first night.  In my experience, it can take up to two hours to get from Orlando International Airport to your resort hotel via Magical Express, and that's assuming no flight delays.  Then, you'd need to check in, drop off your luggage, and then travel to dinner, which could, depending on where you are staying, take another hour. 

    If you do make dining reservations, I would try to make them at your resort.  But, grabbing some quick dining food may be a better option.

    Have a great vacation!
