    I have heard mixed reviews on taking the Disney bus from the airport. Does it really take a long time (a couple of hours) to get from the airport to your resort? Our flight arrives at 6:30 p.m.

    Hi Mary, 

    Magical Express is super convenient in that they bring your luggage directly to your room for you and you can leave the driving to Disney. Upon arrival in Orlando, you just climb aboard the comfortable motor coach, sit back and relax until you get there.
    That being said, the entire process from checking in at the Magical Express counter, to waiting for the bus to your resort, to driving the 30+ minutes to Disney, to (sometimes) stopping at a couple different resorts can take a while. We generally budget 2 hours travel time for the Magical Express. I will say that it has taken us an hour and a half and it has also taken nearly three hours. Thankfully, that has only happened once.

    My family and I are flying down next weekend and our flight arrives around 6:30pm as well. I'm banking on it taking only 2 hours this time, because I'm made a late dinner reservation for once we arrive.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
