    Hi, Arrive Orlando Intl from London Oct25 21:00hrs. Staying PO Riverside. 3adults 2kids. Booked on MME, wondered as we're arriving late and kids being tired, would we save much time by taking a cab to our resort instead. Thanx

    Hi there, Caoimhne!

    We've actually done transportation from Orlando International Airport both ways and I think that timewise, it's about the same difference to take a cab versus using Disney's Magical Express transportation to your Disney Resort hotel. While your Magical Express bus may stop at other Resorts before arriving at yours, you will not have to wait at baggage claim for your luggage like you would if you opted to take a taxi. My favorite part about using Magical Express is that it's a free service provided to Guests staying on Disney property, which is a fantastic benefit in my opinion! I'd recommend packing pajamas and toothbrushes in your carry-on bags so you have what you need for bedtime upon your arrival at your Resort room. I hope that helps with your decision.

    You've also picked a great time of the year for your vacation with the fun Special Events going on in October like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival. You're going to just love Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside too. It's such a gorgeous property!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question and please feel free to come back and see us if you think of any others.

    Have a Pixie Dusted vacation!
