    My family is arriving at Disney on Tue. March 18th at noon. We have requested magical express to our hotel (Port Orleans-Riverside). We have a reservation at LeCellier at 4:30. Do you think we will have enough time? Or should we take a taxi?

    Hi Christine,

    I will try and help the best  I can.  I have used the Magical Express Bus Service many times.  A few times I have come to the counter and was able to go right onto the bus and I arrived at my resort lickety split!!  Another time I had to wait almost 2 hours.  There is absolutely no guarantee on how long it may take, it all depends on certain factors:

    1) Is your plane on time?

    2) Is the airport busy on that particular day?

    3) Is there a long line up for the Magical Express Service?

    4) Did Goofy show up for work late? (oh, whoops! I don't think that was one of them!)

    I hate to say it, but you'll just have to "play it by ear" and make decisions as each situation presents itself.  I don't know if you are aware of this or not, but your luggage may take 3 hours to arrive at your room, so just make sure you have your change of clothes for your reservation in your carry on (I learned this the hard way once!!!)

    Have magical and safe travels,
