    On May 16th my flight arrives at MCO at 2:40 pm. We are taking ME to our resort (all-star movies). Do you think I would be able to make a dinner reservation at Planet Hollywood in Downtown Disney at 4:45 pm or is that not enough time for travel?

    Hi Ryan!

    I think that a 4:45pm dinner reservation would be cutting it really close.  I like to allow about an hour from landing to arrival at my resort via Magical Express, so that would put you there around 3:40, add in time from check-in, stopping by your room to drop off things, and you're already at 4 pm.  I always allow 45 minutes to an hour for travel time via Disney Transportation, so that would put you there just in the nick of time.  I like a little more of a 'cushion' so to speak to account for late flight, locating the Magical Express Desk, etc... 

    I'd suggest 5:30 pm or 6 pm reservation if available.

    Have a magical vacation!
