    Hi there! We are arriving in 1 week!?! We'll be landing at Orlando at 11am and are debating holding off on lunch until we arrive at Pop Century. Approximately when would we arrive at the resort using Magical Express? I was thinking 1-2. So excited!!!

    Hello, Melinda!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    One week?  Are you ready?  Are you ready for all the MAGIC that will soon surround you?  We had better get started because there is not much time.

    I expect you to board Disney's Magical Express about 11:30.  Once onboard, you can expect a 45 minute to an hour of travel time to your Disney Resort.  Because of your early arrival, your room may not be ready, but you may leave your luggage with Bell Services.  You may then catch a bus to any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks which run approximately every 20 minutes.  Your ride may take approximately 10 minutes.  If you are looking at a certain time to make a dining reservation, I would recommend a time of 2:00 p.m. or later.  You do not want to stress about time on your first day or any other day for that matter.  

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  All the fun does not only happen in the parks.  Disney Springs has some of the most unique shopping and dining experiences.  If you need an evening away from the parks, head on over to Disney Springs.  You'll love it and you'll be glad you did!

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
