It's doable but it depends on how long immigration takes, how long the ME takes to depart and get you to your accomodation, how long to get checked in and then get from your accomodation to magic Kingdom...you could be looking at 3-4 hours at worst case, it's a big risk to layout for the MNSSHP tickets when you might not actually get to MK until things are well underway and it will be extremely busy.

It's doable, but if your flight gets delayed for any reason you could potentially miss the whole thing. Personally, I would risk that sort of money. Maybe see if they have any tickets left on the day?

Typically the last one does not sell out early as it is after Halloween by then, like others suggest see how it looks time-wise with your flight and remember you can always buy the ticket through MDE while sat on the plane before take-off.

We always make plans to get to a park on our first night and have never made it yet lol. We are just exhausted by the time we get to the hotel with all the travelling. If you get to the hotel even by 7.30, itís 10.30pm body clock time so if you would still be up for a party night then I take my hat off to you!

We did it, I admit I was tired but it was still a good night. We rented dvc points and stayed at bay lake that night, which did make it more manageable and was a nice treat.

I think you would be pushing it you may not get to the hotel until 7pm so maybe at the park for 8pm at the earliest.

Any delay would make it a waste of money in my view.

Hi, I m in the same predicament,me and my daughter fly on the same day from Manchester and were also thinking if it is doable. Not sure what to do. We want to do Hollywood Studio's extra extra magic hours the following morning at 6 am so it might be a bit much?

Sounds like you are staying onsite so will have plenty days at Disney?
No I wouldnít risk it.
We landed at 3.55pm one time and didnít get to our hotel until 6.50om. No way would I have made a park.

Like most topics on here there are always multiple opinions with advice given based usually on experience. All experiences are unique, if you think it will work and you want to do then I think itís possible (based on my experience). I managed to obtain tickets for MVMCP last December from a generous Dibber. We landed at MCO just shortly before your time, were on Magical Express and at hotel for just before 6.30pm. Quick change for my wife and daughter and they were at MK for just after 7pm. They had a fantastic time at MVMCP. Didnít come back to room until well after midnight. Yes, they were tired the next day, but they felt it was worthwhile... 100% worthwhile! The timings are fraught with risks, you just need to weigh up whether the reward outweighs the risk or if itís just too much of a gamble.
