    Arrive MCO apprx 9:30 am. Taking ME to AoA. Using Disney transportation, is it possible to make a 1:00-1:30 lunch reservation at Tusker House, or do we need to go later? Will have to be at the airport around 4 am for flight check in; kids will be hungry!!

    Hi Lynn!

          You are going to love Disney's Art of Animation Resort!  Typically, I budget 1 1/2 to 2 hours to get to your Walt Disney World Resort from the Orlando International Airport using Disney's Magical Express.  I have had trips where Magical Express only took 1 hour but I have had some that it took around 2 hours to get to my Resort.  I would estimate that you would be at the Art of Animation Resort by 11:30 am at the latest.  I will give you about 30 minutes to check-in and get to your room which would be around noon at the latest.  Then I would recommend budgeting 30 to 45 minutes to get to Animal Kingdom using Disney Transportation (on a bus--it actually may be much less time than this--only 10 to 15 minutes once you are on the bus, but you may have to wait for the bus to come).  So I believe that a 1:00 pm Advanced Dining Reservation at the Tusker House would be perfect for you and your family!

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is filled with magic and memories for you and your family!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
