    We are arriving in ORL at 4:30 pm, staying at Pop Century, and have a reservation at Chef Mickey's at 7:30. I was hoping to use the Magical Express bus to our hotel but am wondering if we may not have enough time. This is our first visit. Thanks!

    Hi there Katie,

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel to ask your awesome question! Disney's Pop Century Resort is our family's favorite Value Resort Hotel, so it's exciting to see that your party will be enjoying it during your next Walt Disney World vacation.

    If you land at 4:30 p.m., and you have an Advanced Dining Reservation for Chef Mickey's at 7:30 p.m., you will be able to make your reservation. Now, you may barely make it, but you'll make it. With a landing time at 4:30 p.m., let's say that you'll leave the airport via the Magical Express around 5:30 p.m. The bus ride from the airport will be between 35 and 45 minutes, which gets you to Disney Pop Century Resort around 6:15 p.m. I suggest taking advantage of online check-in, to cut down your time at Guest Services once you arrive. If you check in, drop your luggage in your room, and use Disney Bus Transportation directly to Magic Kingdom Park, you should reach Chef Mickey's right on time. The best part is if you're 10 to 15 minutes late, Cast Members are still super nice about seating you.

    I hope this answers your question, Katie. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask us anytime. We're always here to help.

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
