    Our arrival is at 11:20 p.m. later this month. We will have no checked bags. Hotel is All Star Movies. Does the complimentary transportation run that late? How long does it take to get from the airport to the hotel?

    Hi Rose,

    Your vacation is just around the corner and I'm sure you're getting excited! Spring is a fantastic time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. Be sure to visit the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival to celebrate the season, where you can enjoy the beautiful topiaries and garden displays throughout the theme park, sample some tasty food and beverages at the Outdoor Kitchens and hear some fantastic musicians at the Garden Rocks Concert Series.

    Disney's Magical Expres is such a great way to start your vacation because I think it's the easiest way to travel between Orlando International Airport and your Disney Resort hotel. Disney's Magical Express operates 24 hours per day, so it is always available for Disney Resort hotel Guests, regardless of their arrival times. This means that you will be able to take advantage of this complimentary transportation for your late night trip to Disney's All-Star Movies Resort.

    In general, I recommend that Guests plan 3 hours between their flight arrival time and their arrival at their Disney Resort hotel to allow plenty of time to travel through the airport, wait for their bus to arrive, navigate through any traffic along the route and make stops at other Disney Resort hotels. However, in my experience, I have found that very late arrival times and early morning arrival times generally lead to quicker trips on Disney's Magical Express due to lighter crowds and less traffic. So since you are traveling late at night and you will not have any checked bags, I expect that your trip will take 45 minutes to one hour to get to your vacation "home".
