    Our flight arrives at 6:30 a.m (if all goes well) and we are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Our group has set up a Character Breakfast at the Contemporary Resort at 9:00 a.m. ---- How the heck are we going to make that? Any suggestions?

    Hi Laurie!

    I would try to change your character breakfast (Chef Mickey's?) to a later time if you can. Even if your flight arrives right at 6:30, it will take some time to get off the plane, get luggage, plus get to the Magical Express area at a reasonable time. Also, the Magical Express departs at certain times, and not necessarily as soon as you arrive in line. The distance from the airport to Disney World is about 40 minutes on average, and there are usually multiple stops (not sure where Animal Kingdom will fall in the drop-off order). So, there are a number of things that can get in your way to making that 9am reservation. Perhaps seeing if you can change it to 10am or 10:30 may make all the difference.

    Now, if you take a taxi instead, you may be able to cut in that travel time, but it's still going to be close. Perhaps the same taxi can drive you to the Contemporary after dropping your things to Animal Kingdom. Something to consider...        

    Good Luck, and hope it all works out for you!
