    Really want to try tusker house, trying to work it into our plans. If we do AK on our departure day, and our flight leaves MCO at 6pm (using DME), what would be the lastest lunch seating we should take? Prefer lunch so we can do rides early, only day at AK


    We are big fans of Tusker House, so I can totally get into this question!

    So if your flight is at 6 pm, that probably means you have to catch the Disney Magical Express bus at 3 pm. Not sure where you are staying, so let's assume you are about a 25 minute bus ride from the park to your resort. That, with a 20 minute wait for the bus to begin with means that I would leave the park NO LESS than 1 hour before your Magical Express time, meaning 2 pm. Assume lunch takes an hour, and that means a seating of 1 pm would be ideal. If it is a few minutes later or earlier, no big deal. 

    But here are three rules;

    RULE 1: KEEP AN EYE ON THE CLOCK! Don't let time get past you. If your hour is up, pay the bill and go.

    RULE 2: Lunch, then leave. No matter when you are done with lunch, that is when you should head to your resort. Even if you are done early. 

    RULE 3: Use a cab early, to avoid using it later. If you end up behind on time and may miss the Magical Express bus, grab a cab to your resort. The alternative, if you miss your Magical Express bus, is a far more expensive cab ride from your resort to the airport. 

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
