    Happy mothers day! We are planning to take the Magical Express from MCO to the All-Star (Sport) hotel. Could you tell us how many stops does the bus have to make before our hotel, please? Thank you!


    The Magical Express routes from Orlando Airport (MCO) can change depending on the time of day, demands at different resorts, etc.  However, I can tell you that the typical route that it will take is directly to All Stars ("AS)".  It will typically stop first at AS-Sports, then AS-Music, and then AS-Movies.  So, you should have a direct "non-stop" connection from MCO to your resort (AS-Sports).  Cool -huh?!

    I rode it a few weeks ago to AS-Movies, and I found it to be very efficient.  My plane landed at 6:15 pm, and I was in my hotel room by 7:45 pm (luggage arrived about 2.5 hours later).  It took less than 10 minutes to let off the passengers at AS-Sports and AS-Music, before heading to AS-Movies.  Of course everyone's experiences may differ (longer waits, shorter waits, etc.), but on average, I think the Magical Express service is an efficient option.  The fact that it is free, sure is nice as well!

    One additional nice thing (especially for a first-time visitor) with Magical Express is that your vacation really begins when you get on the bus, instead of having to wait to get to the resort.  With the themed bus, and Disney video playing inside with helpful tips, you already feel like you've arrived at WDW.

    Hope that helps.
