    My daughter and I are arriving at MCO at 11:30pm, and we are scheduled for Magic Express, but I don't know how long we will have to wait. Does Magic Express wait to be full before they leave?

    Hello, Andrea,

    We have arrived in Orlando at a variety of times, including late in the evening similar to when your flight is scheduled to land.  From my experience, cast members will try to do their best to keep guests from waiting a lengthy time while at the same time trying to get as many guests as possible onto the Magical Express motorcoach. However, I honestly don't think we've ever traveled from the airport to the Disney resorts with a completely full motorcoach.  Please keep in mind that the motorcoaches typically stop at a handful of resorts so the travel time can vary quite a bit, but it will likely be at least an hour in length and could possibly be up to two hours.

    Also, since you are arriving after 10:00 PM, you will need to gather your own luggage at the baggage claim on Level 2 and bring it with you to Disney's Magical Express on Side B, Level 1. 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  If you have any further questions, please let us know. -Kara
