    With a flight landing @8:30am, do you think I have enough time to check in to FQ and get to Hollywood Studios for an 11:30 reservation at Mama Melrose during peak season?

    Welcome back, Shelly!

    Whenever my family travels during busy seasons, I always plan for unexpected delays. You never know when flights will be delayed, or traffic from the airport to Walt Disney World Resort will be an issue. Many years ago I learned my lesson as we missed our first dining reservation because our flight into Orlando International Airport was delayed due to mechanical issues. So even though you think you may have plenty of time to arrive on time for your advanced dining reservation, traveling during peak seasons can be unpredictable. My suggestion is plan to grab lunch at one of the many quick-service restaurants at Disney's Hollywood Studios and have dinner at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano so you can thoroughly enjoy your meal without worry! Believe me, you do not want to miss out on the delicious desserts that Mama offers! I hope this helps and you enjoy your magical visit!

    Happy Planning!
