Time for La Nouba on arrival day?

My sister and I (both adults) are headed for our first DW trip in January.
My issue: My sister has never seen a cirque du soleil show and I was wanting to treat us to La Nouba, which I have heard is incredible. The best evening would be our arrival evening, Jan 3. We arrive at 12:35 at MCO. I have read that it typically takes 60-90 minutes to get to Pop century using ME (also we won't be checking bags just carrying on). Do we have enough time to arrive, use ME to get to pop century, check in, get settled, hopefully rest a bit, grab a quick counter service meal and then get to downtown disney for the 6:00 La Nouba? Or is that pushing it too close? I don't want to do the 9:00 show so that we can crash early and get an early start on our first day. We were wanting to do downtown disney anyways just to wander and shop since we don't plan on buying a park ticket for our arrival day.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice? Thanks!

I wouldn't want to be rushed that much for day 1 of a vacation. I think it could be possible that you make it. I'm guessing that you will be using Disney Transportation, make sure you allow enough time for that. But if I were you I would check in, and hop on the bus to DTD ASAP, you can grab something to eat once you are there, Earl of Sandwich is a great place to grab some food and it is a quick service on the DDP. Anyway you do it, have a great trip.

Like you, this is a traveling day for us. We plan on flying early. Checking in. Eating dinner at 4 at House of Blues and La Nouba at 6. This will be our third time. You will love it.
