    hi tanya ? flight lands @ 4pm taking m.e to W.L do you think we will be able to make our 7pm adr @cm thanks

    Hi there Tina,

    Thanks for writing!  Assuming your flight lands on time and you use Magical Express to transport your luggage (i.e., you bypass baggage claim at Orlando International Airport) I think you have a good chance of making your reservation at Chef Mickey's, but it might be tight.  I would plan on arriving at Wilderness Lodge some time around 6pm.  (If you make a bee line from your arrival gate to the Magical Express area, and the lines to board the buses are moderate, it could be earlier, but I'm trying to be conservative for planning purposes.)  If you make use of Disney's online check-in service, your check-in will be a bit quicker.  Once you check-in, you can drop off any carry-on items you don't need with Bell Services, and take the boat to the Magic Kingdom.  From there, you can either walk (5-7 minutes) or take the monorail over to the Contemporary.   If it's possible for you to secure a reservation at 7:30, I think you'll have more "breathing room" and won't have to rush through the airport  and straight to the boat once you arrive at Wilderness Lodge. 

    Have a wonderful vacation!
