Disney's Magical Express

    Our children and grandchildren arrive on a 3:30 flight and we are wondering when they will arrive at The Boardwalk Villas using the Magical Express.

    "Welcome home," Sarah! It's great to have you here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    I see that your family will be arriving in just a couple of days; how exciting! The only thing better than vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort is doing it with your family and a stay at Disney's BoardWalk Villas puts you right in the middle of the Magic! 

    My husband and I actually have an upcoming stay at Disney's BoardWalk Villas for this summer because the easy walk into EPCOT through the International Gateway can't be beat! When we head to the Walt Disney World Resort, we also utilize Disney's Magical Express, like your children and grandchildren will be doing. I love the convenience and peace-of-mind it provides! 

    Since we have used Disney's Magical Express multiple times and on multiple trips, I can tell you that the exact transport time can vary. However, from the time you check-in at the podium to the time you are arriving at your Disney Resort Hotel, is typically 45-90 minutes.

    Sarah, I would also consider how long it will take for your children and grandchildren to deplane and make their way down to Level 1 on the B side of the terminal. Sometimes we make it very quickly and other times my little ones require a few additional minutes in the terminal. Finally, since they are arriving on a 3:30 flight, to be on the safe side, I would except to be saying hello and giving hugs around 5:30 P.M. 

    I'm sure once they arrive, you'll be anxious to get a jump start on the fun. March is a beautiful time to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort and with the opening date of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway on March 4th, you are at a prime location to take advantage of this and all of the newest offerings at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Sarah, wishing you a vacation full of unforgettable moments with your loved ones. Come on back and see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you might have,
