    Our flight will land at MCO at 12:50 p.m. and then DME will be taking us to our resort (All-Star Movies). We have reservations at Coral Reef at 4:30. That gives us about 3 1/2 hours to get to the resort and then the restaurant. Is this enough time?

    I think you'll be fine, Laura.  The general rule of thumb is to allow 90 minutes from your arrival to resort check-in when using the Magical Express.  With that in mind, let's just assume you have a short delay and arrive MCO at 1:00.  We can guesstimate that you'll arrive at the All-Star Movies resort by around 2:30.  If you quickly settle in and freshen up, you can be out the door by 3:15, which still allows you just over an hour to take the bus to Epcot.  Coral Reef is in Future World, so you don't have to worry about adding a time cushion to get you all the way back to the World Showcase.  And, the fact that you've made reservations for a theme park restaurant (as opposed to a resort restaurant) will allow easier and more timely transportation.  As long as you aren't looking for an extended rest after your travels, you should have plenty of time to make it to your reservation.  Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
