    Does the Disney Magical Express really take up to 75 minutes? Would it be better to just take a cab?

    Hi Kerry, The actual ride from the airport to the first stop WDW hotel takes about 30-35 minutes. The extra time quoted by Disney is because it may take a few minutes for your bus to fill up and depart. The bus may also make stops at three or four WDW hotels to drop off guests and your stop might not be the first. You can reduce your travel time to the basic 30-35 minutes by taking a taxi, assuming one is available immediately. However the big difference is that the Magical Express bus is free, while a taxi will cost about $75 or more. You have to decide whether a potentially 30-45 minute longer ride is worth that much to you. Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if we can provide additional assistance.
