    Approximately how long does it take to use Magical Express to arrive at Animal Kingdom Lodge for us to catch transportation to Magic Kingdom? We are using online check in and will not need to access our luggage before going to the park.

    Hello Ashley! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Using Disney's Magical Express is an efficient and effective way to get from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. 

    As far as timing is concerned, you have done all you can to expedite the process by completing the Online Resort Check-In Service in advance and preparing to have your luggage delivered to your Resort Hotel Room by Disney's Magical Express.

    Depending on the time of day and traffic in the Orlando area on the date you arrive, the trip on Disney's Magical Express takes between 30 to 50 minutes. This timing could be made longer or shorter depending on how quickly the motorcoach fills with Guests at Orlando International Airport and departs from the Airport and how many Resort Hotels the motorcoach plans to stop at before arrival at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge

    With the last detail, you could always disembark at the first stop on your delivery and transfer to Magic Kingdom from there, since you have no need to Check-In or deliver your luggage.

    I would wager that your trip will take roughly 45 minutes to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Have a Wild Vacation!
