    Happy Mother's Day! My family arrives on 5/26 at 6pm. Using magical express. Plan on eating a quick bite at the airport. Staying at the Beach Club. Do you think we will be able to make Wishes at 9:00? Thanks so much!

    Hi, Amy! I'm going to be honest here (and a total dad.) It will be hard to make Wishes. You can save time by grabbing food to go (we really like the smoothies near the center hub) and eating/drinking it while you wait for the Magical Express to take you to the Beach Club. You'll still be cutting it close and adding stress to your trip the moment you set foot in the motherland.

    Here's what I'd do:

    If you have an extra day of park tickets, try for one of the other nighttime spectaculars. If you get to the Beach Club before 8:20, walk over to Epcot via the International Gateway to catch Illuminations. 

    You could also hop the boat over to the Studios for the 10:30 p.m. showing of Fantasmic. It's the second showing that night, so you should have no trouble getting a seat if you're at the show by 10:00 p.m. 

    Or, take a step back and enjoy a stroll along the Boardwalk and catch some Zzzs in preparation for opening a park the next morning.

    Whatever you decide, you win. Why? Because YOU'RE IN DISNEY WORLD!!
