    First trip to WDW in June with my family. We will be arriving on a Sunday and taking the Magical Express. How long should I expect it to take to get from the airport to WDW? Trying to figure out how much time I will have left to go to a park?

    Hi Pam,

    First trip, eh?  Well let me tell you, what a great choice to go to Walt Disney World, and if you are anything like most guests, you will get "bit" by the Disney bug and it won't be your last trip there!  Now on to the "Magical Express Service", which is a very comfy bus/coach that will take you to your resort in Disney so you can start your vacation.  This coach takes approximately 1 hour (maybe even a little less) to get you from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort destination.  It doesn't seem that long though, when you are driving, watching a short video and surrounded by Disney magic and music, before you know it, you will be there!  Expect your luggage to arrive up to 3 hours after you.  They will place it in your room (you do not have to claim it anywhere) so you can enjoy yourselves while they do the hard work for you (you get to play longer!).  Just remember to pack your essentials in your carry-on that you will need for these 3 hours (or more, if you are going to the parks right away) and you will not miss having your luggage at all.  I hope this helps you, and depending on what time you arrive at the airport, you should have time for some fun on your first day!

    Have a magical stay!
