    We are arriving on 10/10th and our plane arrives at 12:05 pm. Assuming there is no plane delays. How long would you estimate it takes to get from Airport/magical express/wilderness lodge? My almost 5 year old son will want to get started asap.

    First, I wish you safe travels and hope that your plane arrives in a timely fashion. I know you'll be anxious to get your son to WDW as soon as possible!

    I would estimate at least 60-75 minutes.

    Let's take a look at my notes from my family's last Disney's Magical Express experience.

    We got off our plane at 4:30 p.m.
    We stopped for restroom breaks, took the monorail to the main terminal and were at the Magical Express desk at 4:50 p.m.

    Note to access the Magical Express desk, go to Baggage Claim. Near Baggage Claim #23, take the escalator across from #23 to the lower level. Veer right and then straight to the desk.

    Since there were no lines at DME, we were on the bus at 5:00 p.m.
    Our bus left at 5:10 p.m. and the video on the bus began at 5:13 p.m.
    We drove under the WDW welcome sign at 5:32 p.m.
    At 5:35 p.m. we were at the Magic Kingdom toll booth. From here, you are a short drive to the Wilderness Lodge!
