    We have reservations at 2:40pm at Cinderella's Royal Table. Our flight leaves MCO at 9:20pm that night. Will we have time to eat and fully experience CRT while still making our Magical Express resesrvation to the airport?

    Hi Heidi!

    Thanks for your question. Be prepared to be enchanted at Fairytale Dining at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Join Cinderella and many of her fellow Disney Princesses for eating, storytelling, and of course, taking many timeless photos! It is one of Disney's Signature Character Dining Experiences and a favorite of many Disney guests! :-)

    To fully immerse ourselves in the dining experience, my family allots approximately 2 hours from arrival to departure so we can fully capture the experience, and not feel rushed. Using that time window as a gauge, if you were to leave at, say, 4:40PM, you'd have to account for the time you're scheduled to board Disney's Magical Express, the time it takes to return to your hotel, whether you'll be doing any last minute shopping, etc.

    Orlando International Airport is one of the smaller airports when compared to, say, Los Angeles International Airport or Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, so getting to your gate typically isn't too difficult once you get to the airport and go through TSA. The biggest key is factoring an approximate leave time from Disney's Magic Kingdom, then getting back to your resort in time to catch Disney's Magical Express for that departure time.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical time on your Disney vacation!
