    How long does it normally take to get to the resort taking the shuttle from the airport?

    Hey, Von!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney's Magical Express is just the beginning of your concierge treatment while at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Disney’s Magical Express bus terminal is located B Side, Level 1 of Orlando International Airport. Once you get through the check-in process you may have a 0-20 minute wait for the motor coach to load all available Guests headed to your Resort Area hotels. If the motor coach has multiple stops then the travel time could be anywhere from 35 to 75 minutes. I would safely budget about 120 minutes from the time you land till you are at your Resort hotel. This will prevent you from feeling rushed. If your travel time is faster then you have more time to enjoy an attraction, shop or relax.

    Disney Dad Tip: If you are arriving early in the day and want to get to the theme parks as soon as possible, then use the Online Check-In service. When you combine Disney's Magical Express luggage delivery plus Online Check-In you don't have to worry about getting to your room immediately. We use this combination and pack a light theme park bag for the plane flight. Once we arrive at our Resort hotel, we get off one bus and jump on the next complimentary Disney transportation to the theme parks.

    Von, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
