    My family of 3 is returning to WDW the week after Thanksgiving, staying at All Star Movies (1st time on-property). How long does it take to travel to parks via ME? How often do buses run? Will there be fewer buses that week since crowds are less? Thanks!!

    Hello Molly,

    My family always takes advantage of Disney's Magical Express (DME). We love not having to worry about transportation from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to our Resort.

    From my past experiences, I allot an hour to 90 minutes from the time our plane lands to when we arrive at the Resort's front desk. This gives us time to walk to Level 1 of Terminal B (where DME's Welcome Center is located) and allows for any wait time there may be. Also, remember there may be Guests from other Resorts on your motor coach so that may add some extra travel time. Now, 90 minutes has been a worse case scenario during peak season. I have checked in with DME and arrived at my Resort in half an hour so just know it's all dependent on your arrival time!

    Unfortunately there is not a motor coach that will take you straight to any of the Theme Parks from MCO. But once you check in at All Star Movies Resort, you can take Disney Transportation to the Parks. Once you board, commute times to the Parks varies but I have found once you pick up all of the Guests at each stop, it take no more than 15 minutes or so to get to each of the Theme Parks.

    I hope this helps!
