    In general, on the Magical Express, how long does it take to get to the park? I saw comments about the unpredictability of traffic so I know it cannot be a give, but if you are travelling at non-rush hour times what is a good average time?

    Hi, Carla!  There are a number of factors that can contribute to the amount of time it takes to go from the airport on Magical Express to the time you are inside a theme park.  In general, allow about an hour to an hour and a half to go from Orlando International Airport to your resort, and then it's up to you whether you check in, grab a bite to eat, or head right into the theme parks.

    I would say on a good day, allow yourself two hours from the time you leave your plane to the time you arrive at a theme park.  This is assuming the traffic is manageable, there is no line at check in, and you don't have to unpack your bags.

    I hope that helps in your planning!
