    We are arriving 11/14 around noon, staying at AKL. Can someone give me an idea how long it may take to get there on DME? I have 2 small kids, and not sure how much of my "keep 'em happy" airplane things I should save for the bus ride! Thanks!

    Hi Angela! My kids are a little older than yours, but I still remember those "keep 'em happy" days! You're such a smart mom to be thinking about these issues ahead of time! The time it takes to reach your resort on Disney's Magical Express can vary. The trip from the airport to Walt Disney World takes 30 to 45 minutes, so on some trips, I've arrived at my hotel about an hour after my plane landed. However, on other vacations, I've had to wait a bit for the Magical Express bus to arrive and fill up with passengers, and then wait while the bus stopped at other resorts before mine. On those occasions, it's taken me up to 2 hours to reach my resort.  The bus does play a cute Disney video, which helps occupy the little ones. However, if your motorcoach stops at other resorts before yours, having a snack or small toy to "keep 'em happy" would be a good idea. 

    Have a magical vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
