Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Our flight lands in Orlando at 12:20 on February 3. Taking the magical express and staying at all star music. I want to go to AK but it closes at 6. Will we have enough time to enjoy the park? I'm not sure what to expect time wise with travel.

  • Lauren, in only a few months you will be meeting Disney princesses, flying with Peter Pan, and eating Mickey ice cream bars!

    Expect to be at your resort about an hour and a half after your plane hits the tarmac. If you factor in time to freshen up in your room and travel to Disney's Animal Kingdom, your everything goes absolutely perfectly scenario will have you entering the park after 3:00. Three hours is not enough time to experience AK and odds are someone in your family will want lunch or you will need to wait for a bus and you would end up walking through the turnstiles closer to four. Instead of spending your arrival day anxious about each minute, wait to visit Animal Kingdom another day. On Day 1 consider heading to Downtown Disney for shopping and dining or visiting a park that is open considerably later.

    Enjoy your visit to the mouse!
