    Approximately how long does it take to wait for, board, and ride the Magic Express to your resort? (I understand that lines may vary and that the bus makes stop a multiple resorts.) Thinking of taking a taxi to save on time.

    Hi Kathleen,

    It looks like your vacation is SOON! In my experience, Disney's Magical Express is a very efficient way to travel to Walt Disney World from the airport! Yes, there is time waiting to board the motorcoach, and you never know how many stops will be made before you reach your resort, but in general it has taken us around an hour and a half to reach our resort (sometimes more, sometimes less.)

    That time includes a restroom stop, making your way across the airport to Disney's Magical Express, and depending on the time of day, a stop for a quick snack. You would be doing most of those things plus waiting for your luggage and taxi if you choose not to use Magical Express.

    If you have a reservation you are in danger of missing, you might save a few minutes with a taxi, but for our family the benefits of Magical Express outweigh the time factor. 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Be sure to stop back by if you have any other questions!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
