    We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge. Our flight arrives at 3:45. We have Chef Mickey Reservations at 5:15. Do you think we will be able to make it? Will the airport transportation drop us the Contemporary and drop our luggage at Wilderness Lodge?

    Hey Carol-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  October will be here before you know it and you will be smelling those sweet candies made at the Main Street Confectionery. I love the planning phase of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If you get a chance, try to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Who wouldn’t want to trick-or-treat around the Kingdom? The Mickey’s Boo-to-You! Parade and Happy HalloWishes fireworks showcase are not to be missed as well as all the costumes guests bring to show their Halloween Disney Side.

    Trying to make a Chef Mickey’s reservation 90 minutes after you arrive is very tight. Possible, by very tight. Disney’s Magical Express drops you off at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. From the Wilderness Lodge it is only a beautiful 5 minute ferry to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This is too close for my comfort level with delayed flights and other unexpected circumstances. When you arrive at Disney’s Magical Express bus terminal at the airport please explain your situation and how important this dinner reservation is to your family and it was the only time you could get. They may let you exit at the Disney’s Contemporary Resort while your luggages goes to your resort. The bus tends to drop off guests staying at multiple resorts and these two hotels are on the same circuit.
    Disney Dad Tip: Downtown Disney Area is a great place for dining with an afternoon or early evening arrival. With so many food and entertainment options it’s a great way to start your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation.

    Carol, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
