    We'll be arriving at the Orlando airport at approx noon on Thurs, 9/27/12, and taking Magic Express to Kidani. How long would you guess for travel to hotel and then to MK? I'm trying to make lunch reservations and don't want to cut it too short.

    Hi Maureen!!!

    I love utilizing Disney's Magical Express on my Walt Disney World Vacations!!  

    If you are scheduled to land at Orlando International Airport at noon, you can expect to be at the Disney's Magical Express counter by approximately 12:30pm.  Depending on the wait time to get on your bus to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village, you can expect to be on the bus by 12:45pm or 1:00pm at the latest.  It is approximately a 30 minute drive to the Walt Disney World Resort from the airport.  I would expect to be at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge by 2:00pm at the latest.  I would encourage you to go ahead and check in once you arrive at the resort.  You can figure in about 45 minutes to check in and get into your room if it is ready.  If you are ready to board the Magic Kingdom bus by 3:00pm, you can expect to be at the Magic Kingdom by 3:30pm.  I would not make an Advance Dining Reservation prior to 4:00pm on the day that you arrive.  This will allow for your flight being late, travel time to the resort, check in time, and then travel time to the Magic Kingdom.  

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!!

    Have a magical trip!!
