    Could only get ADR for CRT breakfast on day we depart. Reservations at 8:30 am; plane departs at 1:15 pm. Staying at Contemporary and planning to take Magic Express. Do we have time or cutting it too close? Have dinner at CRT, but not same characters.

    Hi Brandy!

    Kudos to you!  You really are trying to squeeze every minute out of your Disney World vacation!  Magical Express generally picks up guests three hours before their anticipated flight departure.  Your pick up from the Contemporary will likely be at approximately 10:15, give or take a few minutes.  While it is possible that you make it through breakfast in time to catch your ride back to the airport, it will certainly be tight.  I think it's possible, however.  If you arrive at Cinderella's Royal Table 15-20 minutes early, you will increase your chances of being seated promptly.  If you eat quickly, watch the time, and head directly back to the Contemporary, you should be ok.  Remember, you can either hop on the monorail or take the walkway back to the resort, which we usually find is quicker.

    Such a pace would  probably have my stomach in knots, so I might try to switch to an earlier character meal.  Breakfast at Chef Mickey's, right in your resort is a wonderful way to end your vacation as well.

    Whatever you decide, have a great trip!
