    Wife & I arrive MCO 4:12PM. Bus to Port Orleans. Want to make dinner res that night @ Sanaa... How long should we allot from arrival to res time? Sanaa last res. currently 7:55. Late enough for checkin & resort transit?

    Hi Keith!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! You will love Port Orleans Resort. You will want to allow at least two hours to get from the airport to your resort and be checked in. This will allow time for you to get your bags, check-in for the Magical Express, get from the airport to your resort and go through the check-in process. You will also want to allow at least one hour to get from your resort to the Animal Kingdom Lodge to dine at Sanna. There is not a bus that goes directly from resort to resort, therefore you will need to take a bus from Port Orleans to the Animal Kingdom park and then from the park to Animal Kingdom Lodge. I highly recommend driving or renting a cab for your reservation to Sanna, given that you will be dining late. That will also give you a little more wiggle room to get to your reservation from  your resort. I think that you can make it to your reservation in time, but definitely make it for the 7:55 p.m. timeslot. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
