    Approx. how long does it take from the time your plane lands until the time you arrive at the AOA resort? Trying to plan our first day and not sure which park to hit.

    Hi Lisa!

         You are going to love the new Art of Animation Resort!  I took a tour of it in November 2012 and I was blown away at the rooms and the overall theme!  I typically recommend budgeting at least an hour and a half to two hours to get from the airport to your Walt Disney World Resort especially if you are utilizing Disney Magic Express to transport you from the Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort.  The Orlando International Airport is only about 35 to 45 minutes driving time from Walt Disney World Property depending on traffic if you are driving a car.  The Magical Express Buses usually take a little longer to transport guests to their Resort because they often make some stops at different Resorts before they get to your Resort and typically there is some time involved in loading and unloading the buses.  Also you need to budget around 30 minutes to check in and look at your room.  So the bottom line is that if you plan for around two hours for transportation and check in then you can head to the closest Park for some fun with a lot of the day left to enjoy!

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is filled with magic and memories!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
