    My family and myself will be arriving at Orlando Airport at around 1pm this Thursday and taking Mgc Exp to Pt Orl Rvrsd.. We're curious in regards to how long you think it will take to get to the hotel, check in, and be able to go to Epcot Center that day?

    Hey Dan oh I'm so jealous as you will be at WDW in less than 5 days!  Okay travel time from the airport.  If you arrive at 1 PM (on time) plan on it taking approximately 30 minutes to get from the gate to Magical Express.  If your bus is ready to go and you don't have to wait for it to fill you can be on your way shortly.  The trip to the resort is approximately 30 minutes.  So you should arrive at your resort between 2 and 2:30 PM.  From there it all depends how long check in takes.  This can be a speedy process or it can take some time, but let' just say on the high side it takes 30 minutes.  If all goes as it should you should be checked in and on your way to Epcot by around 4 PM.  It is so funny because on some trips I am amazed how quickly we arrive at the resort, get checked in and are on our way, but I must admit I have had some trips that I thought we might never make it to the parks on check in day.  But let's think positive and send lots of pixie dust your way so that you are out and enjoying Test Track by 5 PM!
    Thanks for the great question, and I hope you have the most magical vacation this week.
