    I am arriving in MCO at 11.30pm and staying in Pop Century. I was planning to do Epcot Early Morning Hours the next day. My question. What time roughly do you think I should arrive at the hotel and what time would I need to leave the hotel to get the EMH?

    Hi Marc! I hope you're one of those people who doesn't need a lot of sleep. Disney's Magical Express usually delivers you to your resort within one to two hours of your arrival at Orlando International Airport. Since you're arriving late at night, you will need to stop at the baggage claim and retrieve your luggage, so I'd estimate that you'd be at your resort by 1 a.m.. The bus ride from the Pop Century to Epcot takes only 15 minutes or so, but you may have to wait 15 minutes for a bus to arrive, so I'd plan to leave your resort room to head to the bus stop about 45 minutes before Epcot opens for Extra Magic Hours. (And if you're feeling a little sleep-deprived, there's a great coffee kiosk just inside the turnstiles at Epcot!)

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