    I'm arriving at MCO on a 12:39 pm flight and planning on taking the Magical Express to Coronado Springs hotel. Will I have time to then make it to Disney Springs for a 5:00 pm dinner reservation?

    Hi Andra!

    It sounds like you are getting ready for an awesome Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I'm happy to help you with your plans. I'm glad to hear that you are planning on taking advantage of advanced dining reservations because it's the best way to enjoy many of the incredible dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Disney's Magical Express is my favorite way to travel between Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World Resort because it's such a simple and easy way to start a vacation. I always recommend that you allow three hours between the time that your flight is scheduled to land at Orlando International Airport and the time when you will be at your Disney Resort hotel and ready for the first item on your itinerary if you will be using Disney's Magical Express. So if your flight arrives at 12:39 p.m., then you can plan to be at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort around 3:40 p.m.

    For your dinner reservation, you will need to travel to Disney Springs and you should allow one hour of transportation time between your hotel and Disney Springs if you will be using complimentary resort transportation buses. So I think you will be able to make it to your 5:00 p.m. reservation in Disney Springs. If you need a quicker trip to Disney Springs, you can always take advantage of the Minnie Van Service to save some time getting to dinner.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions as you continue planning! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
