    We will arrive on the 31st of July 2010 at 13.45 at Orlando airport. If you pick us up with the magical express, when will we arrive at e.g. The wilderness Lodge and can or should we buy a ticket for the afternoon of this day? We will stay another day.

    Hi, Timothy!  I always tell people to allow an hour from the time they arrive to board the Magical Express coach to Walt Disney World until the time they are at the front desk to check in.  The time can vary, based on traffic and other influences, but if you give yourself an hour, you should be able to plan the rest of your afternoon safely.

    If you are collecting your own luggage, you'll have to add some time to that hour to give yourself the time to get to baggage claim, wait for your luggage to come through, and then head to Magical Express check in.  Some people prefer to do it this way so they can have immediate access to their luggage.

    As for whether or not you need a ticket for that day, that's going to be up to your family.  If you have already had a long day, you may just want to relax in the pool at Wilderness Lodge, or spend some time exploring the resort.  You could also plan an afternoon nap, with a reservation for a nice dinner or show (or dinner show!) later that evening.  Another option is to head to Downtown Disney, catch a movie, enjoy a nice meal, and browse some of the great shops the area has to offer.

    I hope your vacation is wonderful!
