    Arrive in Orlando at 3:45 on the 21st with the Magic Your Way travel option. We want to make reservations at House of Blues in Downtown Disney at 6:30 that night. Is that doable? I have been told that travel time from airport to resort can be lengthy.


    So if you land at 3:45, you certainly can't expect your Magical Express bus to leave any earlier than 4:00 pm. Heck, it would take you that long to just get to the bus area from your plane's gate. Realistically you should expect that with the 1/2 hour bus ride, and the chance that you may have other stops before your resort, that you will get to your resort anywhere from 4:45 to 5:30 pm. Then you have to check in and then grab a bus to Downtown Disney. And that ride can take a 20 minute wait followed by up to 30 minutes, depending upon where you are staying.

    I think you can probably do it, but you will want to use the Online Resort Check-In to expedite your arrival time. And if you can move the reservation to 7, that might give you a bit more of a window to relax in your arrival transportation.

    Have a magical vacation!
