    We are arriving at Orlando International at 11:40am. How long should I expect it to take us to get to The Polynesian from there?

    Hi Lori! There are a lot of factors when trying to figure out how long the trip will take from the airport to a Disney resort.  Orlando International isn't known for the fastest baggage delivery at baggage claim and that can take  as long as 30 minutes sometimes.  The walk to the baggage claim can take 15 minutes so it might be almost an hour before you even leave the terminal.

    If you are taking the Magical Express service this will take longer then a private car or taxi.  The timing has greatly improved though and I still recommend using it over renting a car. If traffic is moving along without delays you can reach your resort in 30-35 minutes once you are on the road. If everything goes smoothly you could reach your resort as early as 1:00pm but I would cushion that timing if you are making any sort of reservations for dining once you arrive.  No sense making it more stressful on yourselves!
