    Our flight arrives at MCO at 4:15 and we have dinner reservations at 7:20 at Cap'n Jacks at DD. We are staying at All-Star Sports. Wil we be cutting it close on time with the Disney Transportation from the airport and to DD?

    Hi Marc!
        Yes from what your are describing in your question, you will be tight on time to make your dinner reservations at Cap'n Jack's Restaurant in Downtown Disney.  As a general rule, I like to leave at least about 2 hours for getting to my Resort after landing at the Orlando Airport.  Sometimes it is faster than this and sometimes it is about 2 1/2 hours.  One suggestion for you, if you find that you are arriving later than 6:45 pm to your Resort, then you should pay for a taxi directly to Downtown Disney so that you can make your dinner reservation.  The taxis are usually less than $20.00 to anywhere on property at Walt Disney World.  You could be fortunate to check into your room and then find a Downtown Disney Bus waiting in front of the the All Star Sports but this is unusual to have all the stars align like this, so having a back-up plan is recommended.  I have done exactly what I have described to you many times when I was tight for time on the day that I arrived.

    I hope that you have a great flight, a speedy Magical Express Ride, and arrive to Downtown Disney for your dinner at Cap'n Jack's Restaurant with time to spare!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
