    Just found your website and think I am in trouble on my first nite ADR. Flight arrives 8:00 p.m, staying at Coronado, ADR at T-Rex Downtown at 10:00p.m. Doesn't sound like this will work. Do you suggest making later reservation or finding an alternative

    Hi Fran!

    Thanks for writing.  I would recommend switching your plans a bit for your first night to ensure that you don't miss your reservation.  The folks at Magical Express suggest that it can take up to two hours from the time you arrive at the check-in desk to the time you are dropped off at your resort.  In my experience, this is a conservative estimate, however, I still think that making it to Downtown Disney by 10pm for your reservation is a long shot.  I'm guessing you will be tired from travelling in the evening, and would actually recommend trying to get a reservation at Maya Grill, which is a fantastic table service restaurant located at Coronado Springs.  My favorites here include the Chilean Salmon Filet and Beef Tenderloin Tips.  You can also head over to the Pepper Market, which is a huge quick service restaurant with an equally huge selection of fabulous dinner options.

    TRex at Downtown Disney is a fabulous, fun venue for dinner or lunch, and I would absolutely recommend it.  However, to ensure your Disney vacation gets started on the right foot, I would suggest moving your reservation to another day during your trip!

    Have a wonderful visit!
