    How long does it take to get to the resort from the Orlando airport on the Magical Express Bus.

    Hi, Vicky!

    Thanks so much for visiting with us! We're very excited to help you plan your upcoming vacation!

    Riding Disney's Magical Express from the airport is the start to the most magical vacation you will ever experience!

    The time it takes to get from the Orlando International Airport to your resort can take some time depending on the resort you are staying, the time of day, and time of year! Busier periods of the year can take a while.

    Once you check-in on the lower level of the airport at Disney's Magical Express, you will be directed to a line based on your resort. During this time, you could wait up to 30-45 minutes to board the bus and another 30 minutes before the bus may depart for the resorts. Most buses have multiple stops at various Walt Disney World resorts.

    Once you leave the airport, it can take approximately 30 minutes to arrive at your destination depending on the Orlando area traffic. There's lots of construction going on right now! 

    There have been a few occasions for my family and me where it only took 45 minutes to enter the Magical Express waiting line, board the bus, and make it to our resort safely. Just be prepared to take up to an hour or so to arrive at your resort from the airport!

    Once you board the bus, just relax, enjoy the video, and know that your vacation has begun!

    Enjoy your magical vacation!
