    Good morning! We are arriving 1/21 at 9:25am at John Wayne. If we don't go to our room first, do you think it's possible to make a 10:20am res at PCH Grill? We will have a car. Thank you!

    Hello Jill!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    If you are landing at John Wayne Airport at 9:25 AM, even with a car, making a 10:20AM reservation would be tight. If you are checking luggage, it will take a bit to get at the airport. Even if you are just carrying on, the crowds can be a bit much there. Also, with the infamous Southern California traffic, it usually takes about 30-45 minutes to drive from the airport to Disneyland Resort. 

I would think if you could get an 11 AM reservation instead, that should give you a good cushion of time so that you don’t lose the reservation because of traffic or airport conditions.

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your trip!

    See you real soon!
