    Our flight will arrive in Orlando on 12/12/09 at 4pm. We will be staying at All Star Movies. We have ADR for the G.FloridianCafe at 7:15 pm. What is the best way to get to the Grand Floridian on time for dinner? Thanks.

    Hi Mary!

         OK, we can do this!  While this is a VERY tight schedule, I have a couple of hints to get you to your Advanced Dining Reservation on time.  The very first thing that you need to do is check-in online 10 days before your arrive.  While you will still need to pick up your Key to the World and other documents once you arrive, your line will be much shorter! 

         Since Magical Express can often take up to two hours to get you to your resort, I suggest packing what you need for dinner in your carry on bag.  This way, you won't have to wait for your luggage to arrive in your room - it may take up to three hours!  If you have time, by all means go freshen up in your room.  If not, simply hop on the bus bound for the Magic Kingdom and then transfer to the Resort Monorail.  The travel time will take around 50 minutes, but you must also include time spent waiting for the bus.  Have a great time!

    Much pixie dust,
