    My family will be arriving in Orlando at 8:45pm how long will it take to get from the airport to BLT? We will be travelling on the Magical Express. Also will we be able to watch the fireworks from the observation deck? Thank you, BTW love the panel.

    Hi Jack! It's so wonderful to hear you love the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we love your questions! Disney's Magical Express makes traveling to and from Orlando International Airport seamlessly magical!

    Once you board Disney's Magical Express, it's about a 40-minute ride from the airport to Walt Disney World Resort. The Wishes Nighttime Spectacular usually begins about 9 pm, so you might not catch it the first night. Don't worry you'll have a wonderful view from the "Top of the World Lounge" on the 16th floor exclusive to Disney Vacation Club members from around 5 pm until midnight with an incredible view of the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular fireworks show above the Magic Kingdom Castle. You’ll have to present your Disney Vacation Club card in order to gain access to the elevator for the lounge.

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is just a short walk away from Magic Kingdom so you'll be able to experience the magic right need to wait for your luggage to arrive, thanks to Disney's Magical Express, it will magically appear in your room later!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable Disney vacation!
