    Hi Panel! Our fight arrives in MCO @ 11:40am and will be using DME. What is a good (earliest) time for make TRex reservations for lunch. Thanks for your help.

    Hi Maria,

    I would definitely plan on a late lunch on your arrival day.  In fact, you may just want to grab something light at the airport for lunch and then have an early evening meal at T-Rex.

    I always assume that it will take at least half an hour between when a plane arrives at the gate and when you can find your way down to the luggage claim area.  If you are having Disney's Magical Express take your luggage directly from the plane to your Disney resort, that will save you some time.  However, you still need to proceed to the check-in area for Disney's Magical Express.  Then you will board the bus headed to your resort.  A bus may be waiting or you may need to wait for a few minutes before a bus arrives.  Then you need to plan thirty-forty minutes for your ride to Walt Disney World.  Keep in mind that your Disney resort may not be the first stop for your bus.  Upon arrival at your resort, you'll check in and then board a bus to Downtown Disney. 

    While all of these activities are exciting and fun, it's hard to estimate how long it will take for you to reach T-Rex, so I would not plan your reservation at the restaurant before 2:30 pm so you can relax and enjoy your arrival day.  As I said earlier, if it were me, I'd plan an early evening meal (perhaps at 4:30 or 5:00 pm) so that I could settle into my resort for awhile before heading to T-Rex.

    I hope this is helpful.  Have a blast on your vacation!
