    Flying in around 1:30 pm on Sept 20th. I would like to go to Downtown Disney that afternoon. Do you think that I could fit in some fireworks at one of the parks? Staying at POR. Thanks

    I'm not sure how you are getting from the airport to WDW; but for us when we used Magical Express this summer (they picked up our luggage), it took us around an hour to arrive at the resort.  I'd allow about another 30 minutes to check in and get to your room.  So, you may be ready to go Downtown Disney anywhere between 3 - 4 o'clock if your flight arrives as scheduled. 

    I checked the park hours for September 20 and saw that Wishes is at 10:00 p.m. that evening.  If you spend 3 hours at Downtown Disney, you will still have plenty of time to get to the Magic Kingdom to enjoy the fireworks.  One thing to note is that there is no Disney transportation from Downtown Disney to the Magic Kingdom.  You can take a cab or return to you resort and then catch a Magic Kingdom bus.

    Have a magical trip; it is nearly here!
