    We are flying into Florida and staying at a Disney Resort. The Disney bus will transport us to the hotel. How long should I count on from getting off the plane, getting on the bus and driving to the resort? We are staying at the Carribian. Thank you.

    This could vary from as little as one hour to as many as three or four hours.

    In my experience, I almost always have my bags retrieved within 20-30 minutes of landing in Orlando. Then you have to check in at the Magical Express desk. If there is no line, then this will only take a few moments. But if you hit it at the wrong time, it could take an hour. Then, the drive from the airport to the hotel is only about 30 minutes. However, the Magical Express buses do make stops at all the hotels its passengers are staying at. If you're the first stop, you're in luck. But if the bus makes four or five stops before yours, it could take quite a while.

    The advantage of the Magical Express service is that it is free. The disadvantage is that it could take a while.
