    We are arriving at MCO at 10:21am and taking the Magical Express to All-Star Music. What time should we arrive at the resort? We are planning on going to MK around 3pm

    Hello Jonathan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Utilizing Disney's Magical Express is the most cost-effective and surprisingly time-efficient manner to get from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    Once you arrive at Orlando International Airport and make your way down to Level B1 and Disney's Magical Express, you will queue up for Disney's All-Star Music Resort. The motorcoach that you board will probably be accommodating Guests traveling to multiple Resort Hotels, but the more Guests that board the motorcoach quickly, the sooner the motorcoach will depart Orlando International Airport.

    The trip from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort property takes roughly 35-50 minutes. Depending on how many stops before Disney's All-Star Music Resort your motorcoach has to make and your departure time from the airport, you should estimate a travel time of at least 60 minutes before you can expect to be unloaded at Disney's All-Star Music Resort.

    Your 3pm arrival at Magic Kingdom after Checking-In at Disney's All-Star Music resort and getting settled is completely reasonable. To expedite the Check-In process, I recommend that you utilize the Online Resort Check-In Service up to 60 days in advance of your vacation and check your baggage at Bell Services once you arrive if your room in not ready.

    Have a Magical Visit!
