    We arrive at 10:05 a..m. at MCO on our first day. How long will it take for ME to get us to our resort (Coronado Springs)? If our room is not ready, can we store carry-ons & head to the parks? Have reservations @ Rose & Crown Pub @ 12:45 p.m.

    Hi Sheryl, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  I would recommend to allow for at least 90 minutes for transportation from Orlando International Airport to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.  Although the actual driving time is between 40 - 45 minutes, depending on traffic, Disney's Magical Express may make several stops on the way to your resort.  Another factor would also be the wait time for your bus at the airport, as well as the time it will take getting all guests and their luggage loaded on the bus.  

    Check in at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is 3:00, however you can check in as soon as you arrive.  If your room is not quite ready, feel free to leave your carry-on and all of your other luggage with Bell Services.  This way you and your family can head on over to EPCOT and enjoy your dining reservation.  The resort will send you a text to inform you when your room is ready.  

    I hope you have a magical time on your vacation Sheryl.  Please come back and visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have as your trip approaches.  We would be happy to help!
