    Love the Moms Panel :) Arriving in MCO at 2pm 10/6 staying at PO Riverside. ADR at T-Rex in DTD at 4pm. Is two hours enough time? They didn't have any later reservations available.

    Hi David! This is cutting it very close to be able to honor this reservation time.  If you are taking Magical Express to the resort this alone can take up to 1 1/2 hours since you don't know if your resort will be the first or the last stop on the route.  If you are not taking Magical Express then you must be aware that waiting at the baggage claim in the Orlando airport can get frustrating as they are not the quickest in getting the bags out. Besides all that we all know that airlines can often be late due to weather and mechanical difficulties that are beyond your control!

    Once you get to Port Orleans you might find check-in lines and still need to get the bags to the room unless you just drop and run.  I suggest you consider a taxi at this point as that might be the fastest way over and will drop you off closer then a bus can to the restaurant.

    Clearly I would consider trying for another reservation at another restaurant location and make the time a bit later. Perhaps you can fit T-Rex in at another part of the vacation as I know it is so popular with the kids.  There are many super choices in Downtown Disney and I hate to see you so stressed on the first day of vacation.
