    My flight arrives in Orlando at 5:04pm (1/28/15). Staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I made 7:30pm Boma reservations. Will we have enough time to get to the resort or should I reschedule my plans?

    Hi there, Melissa!

    The short answer to your question is probably yes but let me elaborate a bit.  Provided that your flight lands on time,  you should be fine.  The most you should have to wait for a Disney's Magical Express Bus is about 20 minutes, in my experience.  If everything goes smoothly, I would expect you to be at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge by 6:45 or 7pm at the latest.  If, by chance, you encounter a delay, Disney will be understanding upon your explanation.  If dining at Boma is an absolute must-do, you might want to secure an additional dining reservation for during your trip.  You can always cancel in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE.  

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
