    Flight is scheduled to arrive around 11:00am. We will be taking the Magic Express to our hotel, Coronado Springs. We have a 2:30pm reservation at MK Crystal Palace. How long should we expect for the resort to park? And can we make our lunch reservation??

    Hi Jennifer!!

    Thank you so much for your question!!

    Barring any flight delays, I definitely think that you will be able to make your 2:30pm Advance Dining Reservation at the Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom.  

    If your flight lands at 11:00am, then you could plan on being at the Disney's Magical Express Bus by around 11:30am.  The average trip from Orlando International to the Walt Disney World Resort is usually 45-60 minutes based on the number of resort stops and traffic.  That should put you at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort around 12:30pm, with check-in and getting to your room around 1:00pm.  It is about a 20 minute bus ride from Coronado Springs to the Magic Kingdom.  That should afford you plenty of time to walk to the Crystal Palace which is just off of Main Street past Casey's Corner.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions!!

    Have a magical trip!!
