    We arrive at 8pm, how far is the A.S Movie from the airport. Anything to make our arrival smoother as we are coming with a 2.5 and 5 year old?

    Hello Theresa,

    All I can say is Yayyyy! You are coming to the most magical place on earth! Arriving at 8pm has its advantages and disadvantages. You did not specify if you were using the Disney Magical Express to get to All-Star Movies from the airport. I am going to assume that you are, since it is the best way to go! If you choose to use your yellow luggage tags to have your bags go straight through to your hotel room from your departure airport, you may not get them until midnight or later once i Orlando. You might want to consider not using the luggage tags this time, and pick your bags up at baggage claim at Orlando International Airport. When you get to the Magical Express check-in, only one person needs to stand in line, if there is a line, at that time of evening. So, the rest of the family can sit in the waiting area while one adult gets the vouchers for your transportation to your hotel. You will have to handle your own luggage in line and while waiting for the buses, but at least you will have them with you at the hotel this late in the evening.  The Bus operators will load and unload your bags onto the bus for you, so don't worry about that part. Just remember to tip your bus operators if they help you with your luggage.Your bus trip will be about 45 minutes to an 1 hour to your hotel. but it will be a relaxing trip on a very comfortable bus. You and the kids will watch an informative movie about Walt Disney World that makes the time pass a little faster. I hope this little bit of info helps to bring a little extra pixie dust to your vacation.
