    Hello! We are staying at CBR in mid-December. Our plane lands at 2:50 and we have dinner reservations at 1900 Park Fare at 6:55. Is this a realistic time taking travel time and check-in into consideration or should we try to get a later reservation?

    Hi, Ciara! If there are no flight delays, you should have more than enough time to get to your reservation! Four hours (give or take a few minutes) is ample time to get to your meal. When estimating travel times, I always allow about an hour to an hour and a half to go from landing at Orlando International Airport to arriving at our Resort. (We do not dawdle in the airport.) Allowing the longer hour and a half travel time, it would be about 4:30 for you.  You would still have approximately two and a half hours to check-in, unpack your bags, freshen up, and then head to the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa for your meal.  Travel time from your Resort to the meal will depend on whether you grab a taxi or use Disney transportation. If your budget allows, a taxi would only take about 15 minutes. Disney transportation will take about 45 minutes to an hour because you will need to use the Magic Kingdom as a transfer point. Take a bus to the Magic Kingdom, then hop on a boat or the Resort loop monorail to get to the Grand Floridian. The boat is usually faster because the Grand Floridian will be its first stop (it's last on the monorail loop).  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
