    We're staying at Port Orleans--French Quarter and have a 9pm flight home, but want to try the Crystal Palace buffet before leaving. What time do you think would be safe to get reservations to still make it back to the hotel for the bus? Thank you!!

    Hi Jill! Crystal Palace has delicious food -- what a great way to wind up your Disney vacation! I'd recommend you try for a breakfast or lunch reservation on your last day, so you won't have to rush through your meal. However, if you prefer to have dinner at Crystal Palace, you can book one of the earliest dinner seatings between 3:15 and 4:00 p.m.  The Magical Express generally picks you up 3 hours before your scheduled flight time, so you'll need to be at the Port Orleans French Quarter at 6 p.m. to board the motorcoach. The bus ride to the Port Orleans from the Magic Kingdom is about 20 minutes, but to be safe, I'd recommend you leave the park at 5 p.m. in case you have to wait a bit for the bus.

    Hope you have a magical vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
