    Flight arrives at 2:30 PM -- will use ME to get to the Poly. Have 5:15 reservations for Spirit of Aloha that night. What's the wait to leave the airport? Read that it can take 75 mins to get from airport to hotel. Should I cancel or reschedule?

    Hi Holly,

    Assuming your plane lands on time, I think you will have plenty of time to get to the Polynesian by 5:15.  Remember, since you are using Magical Express, you will bypass the luggage carousel and head directly for the Magical Express counter, sign in and be directed toward an appropriate bus.  However, as someone who regularly flies out of the New York Metropolitan area, I can generally count on flight delays.  I would be more concerned about a delayed flight encroaching on my dinner plans than Magical Express.  I have found the estimates that the Magical Express folks provide are quite generous, and the trip to the resorts generally a bit shorter. 

    I would consider what time of year you are traveling and whether the weather might be a factor in your plane making it to Orlando on time.  In the summer for example, we've been delayed a few times because of afternoon thunderstorms in Central Florida.

    The Spirit of Aloha show is a great way to start, enjoy or finish a vacation, so whenever you go, I hope you have a great time!
