    Susan Asked

    We are staying at AKL and would like to have a character breakfast at Chef Mickeys, the morning of our departure. Our flight is at 2pm. Will we be able to make a 9:50 breakfast and get back to our hotel in time for the magical express trip to the airport?

    Hi Susan! Breakfast at Chef Mickey's is a fun way to end your Disney vacation, but you'll need to make an earlier reservation. Disney's Magical Express will generally pick you up at your resort three hours before your flight to transport you to the airport, which means your pick-up time would be around 11 a.m. Your meal with Mickey and friends will last about an hour; if you start breakfast at 10 a.m., you wouldn't be able to make it back to the Animal Kingdom Lodge in time for your Magical Express pick-up.

    I recommend you schedule your Chef Mickey's breakfast for 9 a.m. or earlier. That way, you'll have plenty of time to eat and travel back to the Animal Kingdom Lodge before your 11 a.m. pick-up. (Plan at least 45 minutes to travel from Chef Mickey's to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. You'll need to walk or take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom, and then hop on the bus to the resort. If time is tight, you can take a taxi from the Contemporary directly to the Animal Kingdom Lodge in about 20 minutes.)

    Hope you have a wonderful vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
