    Hi, we are flying to Orlando on Aug. 15, arriving at 6:05pm and taking the ME to AKL. Any idea what time we might make it to the MK that evening? We are hoping to check-in, then head over for EMH and something to eat. Thanks.

    Hi Margaret,

    The folks at Magical Express recommend that you allow up to two hours from the time you arrive at the airport to the time you check into your resort.  In my experience, this is a very conservative estimate, and it's taken me, on average just shy of an hour and a half (even with a bit of traffic).  Once you arrive at Animal Kingdom Lodge (one of my absolute favorite resorts!), check in and catch a bus to the Magic Kingdom, I'd allow another 45 minutes to an hour.  My guess is that you'll be walking into the Magic Kingdom a bit after 9pm assuming all goes as planned.

    Have a wonderful trip!
