    I am getting nervous about the timing for our first day. My family of 12 arrive 3/28 at 11am. From the airport, we take the Magical Express to All-Stars Movies. Eight of us have reservations for CRT at 5:50pm. Do you think we have allotted enough time?

    Hi Linda,

    I think you will be OK with your timing.  The bus ride from the Orlando airport to Disney is approximately 30 minutes. However, you will have to build extra time in for Magical Express boarding and the potential of stopping at multiple resorts before arriving at All Star Movies (ASM).  Hopefully, you'll arrive at ASM no later than 12:30-12:45.

    Although check-in time for ASM is 4:00, you are certainly welcome to check-in upon arrival.  With any luck, maybe at least one of your rooms will be ready for you.  Otherwise, you do have the option to store any luggage you may have with Bell Services until your room is ready.

    In case you haven't heard, Disney has a new feature for Online Check-In that you may want to take advantage of to speed up your check-in process.  I just answered a question about it here if you'd like to read up on it. 

    You didn't mention if you and the others going to CRT plan on changing clothes prior to your dinner.  If so, I would recommend  bringing the change of clothes in your carry-on luggage, just in case your luggage isn't delivered in time by the Magical Express.

    Finally, I would recommend being at the bus depot at ASM by 4:45-5:00 to allow plenty of time for transportation to CRT. 

    I hope you have a super magical vacation!  Diane
