    We fly in at 630pm and taking the magical express to our resort, POR. Two questions, what time should I anticipate being at the resort? how long will it take our luggage to arrive? Traveling with a little one and thinking about dinner & bed time.

    Hi Jessica, 

    My family uses Disney's Magical Express every time that we vacation at Walt Disney World.  You will need to head the Welcome Center in the Main Terminal Building- side B, level 1.  Once you check-in there, you will need to wait for a bus which can take anywhere from no time at all to around 30 minutes.  Then you will have a 40 minute bus ride to your resort which may make stops along the way to other close resorts.  I would anticipate that you will be at Port Orleans- Riverside by 8:15-8:30 pm at the latest.  Magical Express states that they will deliver your luggage within four hours after you check in at the resort.  It may be easier for you to collect your own luggage in Baggage Claim before heading to the Welcome Center and taking it with you to the resort especially if you need items for bedtime.  Another option would be to pack all bedtime items on your carry-on luggage and let them deliver your luggage later in the evening.  For dinner I would recommend heading to the Riverside Mill Food Court at Port Orleans.  This is a great Quick Service restaurant that has all sorts of options for all meals.  I know you will have such a magical vacation, Jessica!
