    Hello Panel!! I am looking to book my flight to Disney for this Sept. The flight i am looking at arrives in MCO at 310pm. Do you think i will be able to check in at the resort and then make it to dinner at DHS by 6:15? or should i pay extra for a 2pm arriv

    Hi Michele!  You didn't mention if you are taking Magical Express or not.  Let's assume you are for this answer.  I personally like to budget 90 minutes for Magical Express.  It doesn't usually take that long so if you have extra time - great!  That should get your resort by 4:45 p.m.  If you do Online Check-In before you arrive, that should speed up the process once you are at the resort.  You might have time to quickly go to your room but I would suggest you plan on being at the bus stop by 5:30 p.m. so you can wait for the next bus headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  

    If you find you are running out of time, you could always take a taxi to Disney's Hollywood Studios which should be cheaper than changing your flight.  

    Bottom line, I think you have enough time - just keep the option of a taxi in your back pocket.  Have a fabulous trip, Michele!
