    We will be arriving at MCO at 9:30 a.m. and staying at POR. How long after the plane lands until we arrive at POR? When could we anticipate getting settled into our room and off to Magic Kingdom? When leaving, how long before departure do we leave POR?

    Hi Douglas!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel. 

    I generally tell guests to plan on it taking 2 hours after landing to arrive at your resort via Disney's Magical Express.  Sometimes, it can take a little longer, but that's a good average.  However, your room may not be ready when you arrive.  Check-in time is typically between 3 pm and 4 pm depending on the resort.  If your room is not ready, you can leave your luggage with Bell Services and head off to the parks.

    When leaving Walt Disney World, Disney's Magical Express will typically schedule you to be picked up at your resort hotel about 3 hours before your flight.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
