    Our flight arrives at 11:27 in Orlando. We are taking the magical express to Port Orleans. Trying to fit in bibbity bobbiti boutique (at downtown) that afternoon before dinner. Think we could fit it in by 3:00? Not sure how long buses take?

    Hi Lyn,

    On average, Disney's Magical Express takes approximately an hour and a half or so from the time you check in to the time that you arrive at your resort. This can vary greatly depending on crowd levels. I have had it take an hour and I've also waited three hours to arrive at my resort. Each Magical Express bus stops at three to four different resorts and you could end up being the last one that they go to. I believe you would be cutting it very closely.

    If you are using onsite Disney transportation and you are planning on taking a bus from Port Orleans Riverside to Downtown Disney, you should plan on at least an hour for that as well. Buses come approximately every 20 minutes and you never know if you just missed a bus or if one is coming around the bend. You could always take the boat from Port Orleans Riverside to Downtown Disney, but that also comes every 20 minutes or so. Your best bet would be to take a taxi cab from your resort to Downtown Disney which would save you a significant amount of time. A taxi would cost less than $20 and it would be well worth the money.

    I hope this helps and that you are able to enjoy a trip to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. It is an enchanting experience. My little girls absolutely love going there.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation,
