    We have a reservation at Chef Mickey's at 9:15am and our flight home is at 1:10pm. Will we have enough time for Chef Mickey's and get back to Wilderness Lodge for the Magic Express? Alternatively, can we board Magic Express at the Contemporary?

    Hi, Frederick!  Disney's Magical Express will usually book you for a return to the airport about three hours prior to your flight departure time.  That means you are probably going to be leaving at about 10:10 from Wilderness Lodge.

    Magical Express cannot arrange to pick you up at a different resort, but there may be other options you could consider.  You could try to arrive a little bit earlier for your Chef Mickey's reservation.  If you are seated earlier, you might be able to finish in time to get back to Wilderness Lodge.  I think you're going to need to allow at least 30 minutes travel time, so I would try to be out of Chef Mickey's by 9:30 at the latest.  This might be doable if they can seat you earlier.

    Another option is to skip the Magical Express shuttle on the way back to the airport.  You could opt instead for a taxi or a car service to transport you from the Contemporary Resort to the airport.  You should have plenty of time if you plan to be on your way to the airport at least two hours before your flight.

    I hope something works out so you get to enjoy this one last experience!
