    What is the average travel time from the airport to the Polynesian via the Magical Express?

    Hi, Ashley!

    It is such a nice treat for mom or dad not to have to drive when traveling to Walt Disney World. Simply hop on your Magical Express motorcoach and you are magically transported to your Disney Resort.

    Travel times can vary depending on how many stops your motorcoach makes before arriving at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  On the short end, count on about 45 minutes, but if you hit traffic or stop at a few resorts before yours it can be up to about 75 minutes. I have found most of my trips on Disney's Magical Express hover around that one hour mark.

    Remember that if you tag your checked bags with the yellow luggage tags that are sent to you that you do NOT need to retrieve your bags at baggage claim as they will be delivered directly to your resort room (allow at least 3 hours from landing for your luggage to arrive). 

    When you land at the Orlando Airport, head to B-Side, Level 1. Follow the signs to the Magical Express area where your MagicBands will be scanned and you will be directed to your motorcoach line. The motorcoaches do not have set schedules but typically depart about every 20 minutes.

    Once onboard, sit back, relax, and enjoy the welcome video. It is time to start your magical vacation so have FUN!
