    Hi Barbara,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a great resort.  I love the modern feel, and the quick walk to Magic Kingdom Park is wonderful!

    It sounds to me like you are taking advantage of Disney's Magical Express, which will whisk you right from Orlando International Airport to your resort at Walt Disney World.  I think that you are cutting it a little bit close on your lunch time.  I typically suggest that guests allow between one and two hours from the time they land to the time that they will arrive at their resort, with the average being about 90 minutes.  This includes not only drive time, but also the time that it will take you to walk from your gate to the Magical Express area at the airport, the time you might need to wait for your motorcoach, as well as stops at other resorts that the motorcoach might make before arriving at your resort.  You are right on the edge of my comfort level for time!  One thing in your favor is that The Wave...of American Flavors is at Disney's Contemporary Resort, so all that you will need to do is walk right in when Magical Express drops you off.  This is one of those times where you will have to make the call about what is right for your family.  If you do decide to cancel the reservation, you could check out Contempo Cafe at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  It is a quick service location with many unique and delicious choices.  

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Barbara.  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
