    We will be arriving at WDW Nov 16 for our 1st mother daughter trip. Our flight arrives at OIA at 5PM and we'll be touring the resorts that night to see the Christmas decorations. Would it be faster to take Disney Magical Expres or a taxi from OIA to

    Hi Sharon!

    I can't tell you how thrilled I am to hear you are planning a mother-daughter trip! My mom and I took our first mother-daughter trip this summer and it was absolutely incredible. The magic of Disney offered quite the storybook setting for our special trip and we shared many amazing moments creating unforgettable memories.

    While a taxi or Uber can be the quicker option, in my opinion, Disney's Magical Express isn't much slower and is the only transportation choice that offers a jubilant jaunt to your Walt Disney World Resort destination. Disney's Magical Express is more than just a bus ride, it's the first attraction of your Disney vacation. I adore using my MagicBand for the first time and boarding the motorcoach knowing great experiences are just beginning.

    Checking out the different resorts and viewing all of the beautiful decorations is a fantastic idea. We especially like to admire the over-the-top gingerbread displays and as you can see through this link, there were some incredible works of art last year. This year is sure to look (and smell) just as incredible. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and the Candlelight Processional are other holiday events not to miss. The yuletide cheer and Disney magic combination will be sure to leave you both with goosebumps and maybe even a little teary eyed. At a minimum, you'll be left with incredible memories you'll both cherish forever.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I am able to assist you with, Sharon. Enjoy your vacation.

    Magical Wishes,
