  • Hey Lori!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Mom Panel! How exciting to be planning a Princess & Queen weekend!

    Disney's Magical Express (DME) is a great, hassle-free way to start and end your weekend. The trip from Orlando International Airport to Disney's Art of Animation resort could take up to two hours. However, I have never experienced a trip that long. The variables which can effect the trip time include the time it takes to get from your arrival gate to the DME counter, wait time for the next bus, traffic and how many resorts your bus stops at. Given that you are arriving late at night I would guess the line at the DME counter and traffic will be pretty light. You should expect to arrive at your resort somewhere between 12:30 a.m. and 1:30 a.m.

    I hope this helps your planning. If you have any questions please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a magical vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
