    Moms & Honorary Moms, One more question ... Next month I arrive at MCO 4:45pm and have a reservation at Tony's Town Square for 8:35pm. In-between I have to pick up an ECV (recovering from ankle surgery). Will I have enough time without rushing? Thanks!

    Hi Rochelle,

    I hope that your recovery from your ankle surgery is going well.

    Whether you'll be rushed in picking up your Electric Conveyance Vehicle (ECV) given your timetable will depend on a couple of factors.  To begin, are you renting your ECV at Walt Disney World?  If so, that will work in your favor to making it on time as it lowers the number of stops you will have to make.  Also, I am assuming that your plane is arriving on time - if it does not, of course you'll need to reconsider if you can make it.    

    If you are taking Magical Express from the airport to your resort, and then taking resort transportation to the Magic Kingdom Park, I think that you might not have enough time to get your ECV before your reservation.  If you are renting a car and driving straight to Magic Kingdom Park from the airport, you are more likely to have enough time to pick your ECV up on the way into the park.  It does work in your favor that the ECV pickup is right after the turnstiles at Magic Kingdom Park, and that Tony's Town Square Restaurant is on your right immediately when you enter Magic Kingdom Park, so the distance between the two are very slight.  If you are running short on time, if you are traveling with a group, once you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, you could send someone else ahead to check in for your dinner reservation while you pick up your ECV.  Overall, I think that it might be possible for you will be able to pick up your ECV on the way to your reservation, but there are a lot of factors that will figure in to whether it works out. 

    I hope that this information is helpful, Rochelle.  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
