    how long should I plan for travel time with the magical express from the airport? we are staying at all star sports, arriving at 10 am and I was looking into reservations for chef mickeys brunch. 1:15 is the latest time I can find available. Thank you!

    Hello Lauren and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    I typically tell Guests to plan for 90 minutes from landing until arriving at their resort. However, many things can impact this travel time:  delayed flights, excessive wait at the baggage claim, a wait on the Magical Express while they wait for other Guests are just a few possible delays. Also, your Resort hotel may not be the first stop after arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort.  Also, once you arrive at your resort you may have to wait a bit for the bus to the Magic Kingdom and then the Monorail to Disney's Contemporary Resort. It isn't impossible, but in my opinion, it could be a bit tight. If your delayed in any way and you miss your reservation you will be charged a fee by Disney Dining. On the other hand, if everything goes smoothly, it is likely that you could make a 1:15 reservation.  While I can't give you an absolute answer on whether or not this plan will work, I hope this has helped you at least a little in making your decision.

    See ya real soon!
