Emh?

My flight will land at 7:50 pm. I will be (hopefully) staying in a Little Mermaid Room at AoA. If not, then it will be All Star Music I think. MK is having EMH that night until midnight. What do you all think the odds of me getting to MK by 10pm for the fireworks?

I've gone a few times, but I don't always take note of when I arrive.

I don't normally head to the parks that late as I'm usually there by then. It's such a short trip (I will be leaving on a Thursday after arriving on a Sunday) that I want to take advantage of as much park time as I can!

I don't think that you can make it. Assuming you land on time, you should get to the ME area about 20 minutes later, so 8:10, figure another 20 minutes to get on the bus and leave the airport, now its 8:30, then 30 minutes to get to the first resort, it is now 9:00. I do not know what "loop"AOA" is in but generally the ASMu is the second resort to be dropped off, so you'd get there around 9:15/9:20. Are you planning on checking in first, do you need your tickets? If you do not need your tickets, you can leave your carry on luggage with bell services and go out to the bus stop and hope that a MK bus comes right away. The MK is about 15/20 minutes from the Allstar resorts. You might make it right at 10:00, but that is assuming everything goes well, one thing goes a bit late, you'd be getting to the MK after Wishes had already started, or over.

Figure 70-90 from landing to resort. That gets you to the resort between 9-9:20. By the time you get checked in, drop off carryon luggage, then go wait for the bus, it's easily 9:30 if not later. If a bus pulls up quickly, you MIGHT get to MK by 10. Any kind of wait and you're in trouble.

I wouldn't count on making it.

Thank you both. I was hoping, but not really thinking it was too possible. I can still make it for a little bit of EMH since it's a very short trip now. I am now coming home on Thursday instead of Sunday, and I arrive on Sunday. Oh well. It's still a trip to WDW!
