    Need a little more help, please. Mapquest says 32 min from Grand Floridian to MCO. We have lunch ADR @ noon in GFCafe. Do you think that's enough time to get to MCO by 1:45 for 3:45 flt? Mid-day Friday, day after Thgiving, personal car. Thank you so much!

    Hi Marilyn!  I love that you are packing your vacation with fun right to the last minute!  MapQuest is correct that it will take, on average, 30 minutes to get to Orlando International Airport.  In a perfect world, you should be able to arrive by 1:45.  However, one thing to keep in mind is potential traffic.  You never know when there will be an accident to put a wrench into your plan!  If it were my reservation, I would try and move it back by 30 minutes (to 11:30) and if that is not possible, I would arrive for my reservation a few minutes early in hopes of being seated as close to noon as possible (or if you're lucky, even a few minutes earlier).  Let your server know you have a timeline.  Also, make sure your car is packed and ready to go so you can leave as soon as you have finished dining.

    Have a wonderful vacation!  Diane
