    Our last day Sept 12 , ADR is for Le Cellier at 1:20pm. Will checkout early & bags held at resort WL . Our flight is at 7:25pm . We will be using Magical Express so 4 ish pick up time Am I planning enough time to get back to WL. ?

    I think you'll be OK.

    You're right in thinking that your Magical Express bus will pick you up at the Wilderness Lodge about 3 hours before your flight time. So 4:00 or even 4:15 is a good guess for when you need to be at the WL.

    If you have a 1:20 reservation at Le Cellier, I would be there 15-20 minutes early to make sure you get seated on time. You can expect that your meal will take slightly more than an hour. That puts you at maybe 2:45 at the latest. I would proceed directly to the park exit and hop on the bus to the Wilderness Lodge. Even if there's a wait for the bus, an hour should be sufficient time for the trip, putting you at the WL just before 4:00. Time enough to get your bags and be on your way.

    Worst case scenario ... if for some reason Le Cellier is really backed up and they can't seat you on time, then you might have to skip your meal. Or if the bus is severely delayed, you might consider jumping in a cab to take you from Epcot to the hotel. But, again, your plan should work out fine.
