    Kim Asked

    Arriving @ 10:30am on a Sat. We're wondering how long Magic Express ride is to the Contemporary. It seems it is the farthest resort to get to, will the bus stop at all of the other resorts? What type of bus is it? We are worried about motion sickness.

    Hi Kim,

    I was on that Magical Express bus with my family less than a month ago.  At present, there are four stops on the Magical Express bus to Disney's Contemporary Resort.  They stop first at Disney's Polynesian Resort, then at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, followed by a stop at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  Disney's Contemporary Resort is the fourth and final stop on this Magical Express route.  You should allow 60-90 minutes to reach your resort once you leave Orlando International Airport.

    The buses are quite comfortable and equipped with a restroom.  They have video monitors overhead to showcase what is new and exciting at Walt Disney World while you are en route to your hotel.  This definitely makes the time go faster and it's a great way to build excitement as you approach the gates to Walt Disney World.  I can't help but cheer as the Magical Express bus drives through those magical gates! 

    As far as bus rides go, this one is pretty calm.  It is not as bumpy as a school bus would be.  I suggest that the members of your party who experience motion sickness sit near the front of the bus.  That helps my brother-in-law who suffers motion sickness, too.  There really is no rough terrain between the airport and Walt Disney World so I think you will be at low risk for motion sickness.

    Have a magical trip next week!  Sending you pixie dust for a safe and memorable journey.
