    Our flight arrives at MCO at 2:35 pm on 04/26. Taking magic express to AOA- little mermaid. I have a reservation for 7:10 PM at Chef Mickeys (CM). Wondering the best time to leave and what route to take for CM? Any recommendations on what to do in between?

    Hi Lisa, 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I can't think of a much better way to start your vacation than dining at Chef Mickey's with the original Fab Five.

    When traveling from any resort, it's recommended that you allow at least 90 minutes for travel time if you're using Disney transportation.  Based on my own experience with Magical Express, you should have plenty of time to get from the airport to Disney's Art of Animation Resort to check-in, drop off some of your things in your room, and explore the storybook theming.  When it's time to head to Chef Mickey's around 5:40 p.m., just hop on the first Magic Kingdom bus you see.  Upon arrival, you can either take the walking path to Disney's Contemporary Resort, which takes about 10 minutes, or catch the first resort monorail and exit at the first stop.  

    Have a magical vacation, Lisa, and please let us know if you have any other questions!
