    Kathryn from IL Asked

    I have a reservation for Whispering Canyon Cafe at 12:05pm. My flight leaves at 5:50pm. I'm taking the Magical Express to the airport. Do I have enough time to enjoy my meal and make it back to the AoA for the ME?

    Hi Kathryn, 

    When you use Disney's Magical Express, you will be given a time to board the bus on your departure day the night before.  This is three hours before your flight leaves Orlando International Airport.  Based on your flight information, you will need to be back at the Art of Animation Resort by 2:50 pm.  Most Table Service Restaurants will take at the very least an hour to eat at but more I usually schedule around one and a half hours just to be sure.  Be sure to let your server know that you are on a time schedule and hopefully your meal can be out sooner.  If it takes one and a half hours, then you will be done around 1:30 pm.  This should give you enough time to get back to your resort.  The best way would be to take the boat to Magic Kingdom from the Wilderness Lodge and then take the bus back to your resort.  Hopefully, you will not have to wait long for the bus.  You can always take a taxi back to the Art of Animation resort, but I think you will be able to do this.  I would arrive to the Whispering Canyon Cafe about  20 minutes before your reservation time to see if they can seat you early.  I love that you are trying to get in as much as possibly before leaving!  Enjoy your lunch, Kathryn!
