    We're getting ready to book fastpasses for our trip in late Aug. If our flight is arriving at 11:30am & we're taking the Mag Express to the Poly, where we're staying, what is the earliest time we should book a fastpass at Magic Kingdom? TIA for your

    Hey Sandra! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so glad to see that you are utilizing Disney's Magical Express. The Magical Express is the easiest and most economical way to travel back and forth between Walt Disney World and Orlando International Airport (MCO).

    A conservative estimate is that you could be in the Magic Kingdom as early as two hours after you land at MCO. However, this estimate doesn't take into account things like how much time you spend in your room after check-in, crowd levels once you enter the parks and where your FastPass+ selection is located within the park.

    One feature of Disney's FastPass+ system is that your selection window is one hour. This means if you were to make your first selection at 1:30 p.m., you would have until 2:30 p.m. to use that selection. This should give you plenty of time to get into the park to your first attraction.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about your touring plans or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
