    Hello, first trip to Disney in 4 days! Our plane arrives at 11am and we are staying at Pop Century but have lunch reservations at 2pm at Disney Springs, is that cutting it to close? TIA

    Hi Julie,

    Thanks for stopping by to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Are you ready for a magical time?

    Disney’s Magical Express is a complimentary motorcoach transportation to and from Orlando International Airport and select Walt Disney World Resort hotels. It also magically takes care of your checked luggage by delivering it right to your room. The vacation starts as soon as you step foot off the plane!

    If your airline participates in Disney’s Magical Express and you added the corresponding luggage tags to your checked bags, once you disembark your plane you can proceed directly to the motorcoach. Otherwise, you would need to pick up your luggage first. Travel time to your resort hotel is about 40 minutes. Note that the motorcoach may stop at other resorts first. Once you check in at Disney's Pop Century Resort, and if your room is ready, drop off any of your carry-on luggage. This should give you plenty of time to arrive to Disney Springs for your lunch reservation.

    Where will you be dining? This past summer, I had an amazing lunch at Morimoto Asia, and cannot wait to go back. One last thing: make sure you do not pack your MagicBands in your checked luggage, as you’ll need them to check in with Disney’s Magical Express. Safe travels!
