    Thank you so much I love the panel and all your help. Leaving in 5 days can't wait! Need to know if flip flops are acceptable at Chef Mickey going straight from airport. Rushing arrive at 7pm reserv @ 9 pm. Hope we make it checking in at Caribbean Beach

    Hi Barbara!

         As a fellow flip-flop girl, I can tell you that they are accepted just about everywhere at Disney World.  Also, as a Southern Louisiana chick, I wear flip flops nearly year round and Disney is no exception! 

         To be honest, I'm not sure if you will make your Advanced Dining Reservation if you check in before hand.  In order to save time, I recommend getting off of the Magical Express bus and then hopping on a bus bound for the Magic Kingdom.  From there, grab the monorail headed to the Contemporary Resort and enjoy your meal.  You won't get to Caribbean Beach from the airport until at least 8:00 PM and the trip to Chef MIckey's will take around 35 minutes.  Your resort will hold your luggage for you, but cannot deliver it to your room until AFTER you have checked in.  Of course, if you are heading straight to the restaraunt, this means that you won't be checking in until after you eat.  Unfortunately, your luggage can take up to 3 hours after you check in to be delivered.  I know that this sounds rotten, but at least you will get to dine with Mickey and the gang!

    Much pixie dust,
