    Hi: Leaving in five days and wondering how long it might take to drive my rental car from MCO airport to GF? Arriving MCO at 11:30 and have reservation at GF at 1:40 - will this be OK? Staying at BW so will parking at GF be a problem? THANKS!

    It takes 25 minutes without traffic delays to drive from the Orlando International Airport to WDW property. Even allowing time for you to stop at Baggage Claim, get your rental car and make your way to the Grand Floridian, you should be fine!

    When you reach the Magic Kingdom toll booth, you will need to tell the attendant that you are dining and then checking in to your resort. Otherwise, you will be charged the daily parking fee. Just have your confirmations in case they inquire further.

    Once you arrive the Grand Floridian, you can provide the Toll Booth attendant your dining reservation number. They will give you directions for parking and perhaps give you a timed parking permit. Valet parking at the Grand Floridian is highly recommended. The parking lot is quite a distance from the hotel.
