    Flying into Orlando in Sept 2016 and will use Disney Transportation to AOA. How much time should I allow to get to the resort? Trying to decide on a dinner reservation.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Miranda!

    Disney's Magical Express makes getting from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort so easy! I love that I don't have to even worry about getting my bags from baggage claim. I put the yellow baggage tags on them before I check them in at my home airport and they magically show up in my Walt Disney World Resort hotel room! I allow 2 hours transportation time from the time I check-in at the Disney's Magical Express terminal until the time when I arrive at my hotel. I also give my family an hour to get off the airplane and get through the airport. So I schedule a total of 3 hours between our scheduled landing time and the time I expect to get to the hotel. This plan will help you relax on your bus ride as you are starting your vacation!

    Let us know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
