    Hi, Leaving DW on Thanks day at 6, and we were going to Downtown first in the am. Do u think I will have enough time if I do lunch at the Whis Can Cafe and get back to my hotel by 3 for Mag Express?

    All of this depends a bit on where you're staying and what time you eat lunch, but yes, I would think that you could eat at the Whispering Canyon Cafe for lunch and be ready for a Magical Express bus at 3:00. For transportation back to most WDW resorts from the Wilderness Lodge, you would take a boat from the WL to the MK and from there take a monorail or bus back to your hotel. For most resorts I would leave an hour to complete this transaction. This being your departure day, I would probably pad this by at least 20 minutes to give you buffer time as well as an opportunity to get your luggage or use the bathroom before the Magical Express bus arrives. So, let's say that means you need to leave the WL by 1:30. A regular lunch at the WCC would take about an hour. Again, I might pad this a bit because it is Thanksgiving Day and things could be a bit wonky for the holiday. So, I would try for a meal reservation as close to noon as possible. I think if you do this, your plan will work fine.

    I'll be at WDW Thanksgiving week too. Make sure to stop and say "hi" if you see me in the parks!
