Disney's Magical Express transportation

    Hi! We arrive at Orlando Airport at 10am. We want to make it to one of the parks that day. How long does it typically take to get from the airport to a Disney resort Hotel using the Disney Magical Express(DME)? Would like to know for FP+ planning :)

    Hello Drew and thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with such a great question about your upcoming trip to the magic Walt Disney World Resort
    My most favourite bus journey in the whole entire world is the one onboard Disney's Magical Express from Orlando International Airport to my Disney Resort hotel!  
    Upon landing, disembarking and so on at Orlando International Airport, all Guests using Disney's Magical Express should follow the clearly marked signs and make their way to Side B, Level 1 - Ground Transportation.  Generally speaking after checking in with Cast Members you should expect to board Disney's Magical Express in around 20 minutes or so and once onboard it should take approximately 40-80 minutes to arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel; this of course is highly dependant on traffic and perhaps making scheduled stops at other Disney Resort hotels.  
    So ensure you're not like Alice in Wonderland's White Rabbit and late for a very important date or indeed a FastPass+ experience I would allow at least 120 minutes from your initial arrival at the airport to ensure you do not arrive rushed for time. 
    Plus I also thought you may find these Frequently Asked Questions - Transportation to be an extra useful planning resource. 
    Have a great Disney day.
