    Staying at AoA and on our departure day we have to sign in for the Magical Express to the airport by 11am; is it possible to have breakfast at Ohana and get back to AoA in time?

    Hi, Charles!

    If you are very efficient, I think you can squeeze in one last breakfast before heading home. Here would be my plan:

    -Use the Resort Airline Check-in Service at your resort by 6:30 am
    -Drop any carry-ons at the luggage area
    -Be on the bus to the Magic Kingdom by 6:45 am, then transferring to the Resort Monorail to reach Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
    -Have a dining reservation at 'Ohana no later than 7:45 am
    -Following breakfast, hire a taxi at the front door of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort by 10am (taking Disney transportation will take too long).   Expect a taxi fare of around $20 (approximate).
    -Arrive at Disney's Art of Animation by 10:30 am

    This gives you a 30 minute cushion, and time to pick up any carry-ons from the luggage holding area. Disney's Magical Express is very efficient, so even if you are just a few minutes late, you run the risk of missing your motorcoach - something you do NOT want to do!

    My family is just like yours, as we like to fit it every last minute of magic as possible. Just allow plenty of time and you should be fine. Enjoy your stay at Disney's Art of Animation!
