    Ok so I am coming in on 5/18 for my son birthday but we have reservations to the espn club lunch at the Disney board walk. Will the bus from the airport at 9:15 get me to the espn club lunch by 12:45? Our rooms might not be ready.

    Hi Rebecca! I see a few questions here from you and will try to help you out with your planning for your upcoming trip. What an exciting place to come and celebrate a birthday and do so many fun things together as a family.

    You did not mention which resort you have booked in this question but will assume it might be the All Star Movie Resort that is mentioned in another question. If not then the procedure will still be the same form any of the resorts.

    If you are on your Magical Express bus at 9:15am and take it to your resort you are correct in that your room will probably not be ready. But no worries, simply drop off your luggage with the bell staff and hop on the Hollywood Studios bus. There are no direct resort to resort buses so you must make a change at the parks. When you reach Hollywood Studios head over to the boat launch which you will see at the park entrance. Take this boat and get off at the Boardwalk stop. Then it is a short walk to the ESPN Club where you can enjoy a great lunch.

    Because you have to make transportation changes it will be important that you don't dawdle and if you can do that you should be able to make your lunch reservation time. To head back to your resort you can either catch the Disney Springs bus outside of the Boardwalk Resort and transfer to your resort bus there or take the boat back to Hollywood Studios and catch your resort bus. 

    Your last option would be to take a taxi but that is not complimentary and would run you about $20 each way depending on traffic.
