    I'm staying in POR for 6 nights then going over to AKL for 6 nights. Can I get the Magic Express to transport my luggage? Would there be a cost? How long will it take me to get from POR to AKL? What route do your suggest?

    Hi Laura,

    Sounds like you've got a wonderful trip planned, I love both of those resorts!

    Magical Express won't transfer your luggage for you but don't worry as bell services will. As you check out of Port Orleans Riverside just tell them you're transferring to Animal Kingdom Lodge and they'll sort this out for you. This is a free service but tips aren't included.

    The best way using the free Disney Transport to get from POR to AKL is to catch a bus to the Animal Kingdom. You can either go all the way to the park and then transfer to an AKL bus or a slightly quicker way is to get off at Blizzard Beach (Animal Kingdom buses all stop at Blizzard Beach) and then transfer to an AKL bus there, this should take about 35 minutes plus waiting time. If you don't fancy that taxis are available at the front of all Disney resorts.

    Have a great trip,
