    We are coming on our first Disney vacation the end of October. The airlines keeps changing flight times and it affects dinner reservations. How long does it usually take to transfer from MCO airport to our resort hotel via Magic Express?

    Hi, Jill!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm sorry to hear your airline keeps changing times.

    I've had the chance to use Disney's Magical Express a number of times. I try to budget the trip from the moment I walk off the airplane, onto the bus and walk into my Walt Disney World Resort hotel will take at least an hour. If I have to pick up my own luggage, it takes even longer. My timing has ranged from an hour to an hour and a half depending on how many hotels the bus visits to drop off guests.

    I hope that helps with your planning! If you're worried about making your reservation, I'd recommend talking to a Cast Member on the Dining Reservations phone line. Let them know about your travel concerns and see if there are any options to guarantee you don't lose your reservation spot! I bet they can work with you.

    I hope that helps ease your mind! Let me know if I can help with any additional planning before you arrive!
