    Hi, We will be staying at POR. Our flight was scheduled to arrive Nov 17 at 10:05AM has been changed to 1:46PM. We were planning to use the ME bus. We have reservations at the Crystal Palace for 4:50 PM. Will we make it or should we change our DR.

    Hi Cynthia!

    Wow!! So sorry to hear that your flight schedule has changed.  I, for one, always try to schedule my flights super early, so that I'm able to experience as much of Disney as possible, so I do share in your concern. However, I think your new flight will leave you with time to make your fantastic Crystal Palace reservation.

    The best part of using Magical Express, is not having to worry about your luggage, once you've touched down at Orlando International Airport.  Now that that is out of the way, your main mission is to get to Magical Express, and get a seat on the bus.  Normally, the bus ride from MCO to Walt Disney World resorts is between 40-45 minutes, depending on traffic.  So, if you've arrived at 2 pm, and head to Magical Express, the latest you could be at resort is approximately 3 pm, given time for transport and resorts stops.  Complete the check in process, which may run about 30 minutes maximum, and you are set and ready to go by 3:30 pm.  This will give you more than enough time to take the bus to Magic Kingdom and enjoy the sights and sounds of Main Street, USA, before Crystal Palace.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
