    What is average time to get from Orlando airport to a Disney resort (Animal Kingdom Lodge) using magical express. We fly in at 11:30 and our first lunch reservation is same day at 3:00 in Disney Springs.

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

    I love how Disney prepares for guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resorts. Disney's complimentary transportation service, otherwise known as Disney's Magical Express, is prepared to bring MAGIC the moment guests land at the Orlando International Airport.  

    I will take you approximately 20 minutes to make your way to Disney's Magical Express.  If you are picking up your luggage, I would add an additional 10 minutes. Once onboard, you will have approximately 30 to 40 minutes to sit back and relax as you are transported to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. With your lunch reservation being at 3:00, it is safe to say that you will make it with plenty of time.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Disney Springs offers many great shopping venues, so be sure to check them out while visiting. 

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