    Will be arriving @ 5:40 pm. How long does it take to get Animal Kingdom Lodge on Magic Exp? How long does it take for the luggage to arrive? I'm trying to decide if I should make reservations for dinner and or hang at the pool and what to pack in carry on.

    Hey Kaylene,

    When we pack for our trips, I always pack our swimsuits, a change of clothes or pajamas (depending on the time of our arrival), and all of our medications in our carry-on luggage. Not only to hold us over until our luggage is delivered, but just in case our bags are lost by the airline. Disney's Magical Express Luggage Service can take up to three hours to magically deliver your luggage to your resort room, so make sure you at least pack the items you'll need for the first few hours of your trip in your carry-on bags. 

    As far as what to do the first night, we really enjoy hanging out at our resort, checking out the pool, and relaxing. This way everyone is refreshed and ready to head straight into the parks the next morning. After all, it's vacation; we need to relax a little right? I would plan on the ride from the airport to your resort taking around one hour.

    Please come back and see us again if you have any other questions.

    Have a Disney day,
