    If we are flying in to MCOon 9/8 at 10.22 am and want to try and make a lunch reservation at whispering canyon cafe what would be the suggested time? We want to try to check in first at port orleans riverside then go to park after.Thanks in advandce

    Hello Brad,
    Orlando International (MCO) is one of my most favorite airport destinations; but as soon as I arrive there, I want to leave!
    In my experience I would allow 2 hours to get from your aircraft, through the airport and travel over to Walt Disney World Resort either in a hired vehicle or on the blissfully easy Disney's Magical Express.
    Once at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside you'll of course want to to check-in, deposit your luggage safely in your room and freshen up.  
    I'm a great believer in not rushing and being early; after all you are on vacation!  With all this in mind I would allow another 1 hour travelling time between your Resort and Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  
    So a reasonable time for a no-panic lunch reservation at the Whispering Canyon Cafe would be around 1.30 - 2pm.  
    Have a great Disney day.
