    Our return flight on Sunday 5/11 is at 1:15 pm. Do we have time to Visit Magic Kingdom for a couple hours if we get there before 8am? Thanks

    Hi Joan!

         The Magic Kingdom is currently scheduled to be open at 9:00 am on May 11th, 2013.  If you are utilizing Disney's Magical Express service to get to the Orlando International Airport then it will be picking you up at your Walt Disney World Resort approximately 3 hours before your scheduled flight which in your case would be 10:15 am.  Keep in mind that you would need to get back to your Resort  from the Magic Kingdom to be in time for your Magical Express pick up which typically can take 20 to 45 minutes using Disney Transportation.  If you have a vehicle and are driving to the Orlando Airport, I would recommend budgeting at least 2 to 2 1/2 hours to drive there, check your bags, get through TSA security, and get to your gate.  So it is your decision, but either way you realistically would only have about 1 hour in the Magic Kingdom on your departure day.

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is extra magical!
