    We are staying at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge Aug 12 - 15. We have a flight home on the 15th at 9:30pm. Any idea what time The Magical Express would be picking us up? I made a reservation for dinner that day at Artist Point at 5:35 .

    Hi Alfred! People say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and I'm afraid I'm not going to win your love with my answer: I don't think you're going to have time to eat a nice leisurely dinner at Artist Point. Disney's Magical Express transportation service generally picks you up at your resort three hours prior to your flight. Your pick-up time will likely be around 6:30 p.m., which doesn't give you much time to eat at Artist Point. I was hoping I could advise you to move your reservation earlier, but Artist Point doesn't open for dinner until 5:30 p.m. so that's not possible. You might want to consider dining at Whispering Canyon instead. It opens at 5:00 p.m. so you'd have enough time for a quick meal at this casual, fun spot before boarding the Magical Express to the airport. The food at Whispering Canyon is not as gourmet as the elegant Artist Point, but many people rave about the all-you-care-to-eat Canyon Skillet.

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