    I'm using the Disney Magical Express transportation from the Orlando airport to our hotel (Polynesian). Our flight arrives in Orlando around 11:00am on 8/25. Can anyone tell me when we can realisticaly expect to arrive at our hotel?

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Disney's Magical Express is such a great service.  Getting right from the airport to your resort on the magical coach is wonderful!

    On average, I think you should consider about 90 minutes from the time you land until the time you arrive at your resort.  The ride itself does not take this long, but there are a few variables that can impact how long it will take.  First, you will need to get from your gate to the Disney Magical Express departure location at the airport.  Then, there may be some other guests waiting for Disney's Magical Express in front of you.  Also, it may take a little while for the coach that you are on to load fully.  Once you arrive at Walt Disney World, your Magical Express Coach may stop at other resorts before yours.  All of these variables mean that it can take between one and two hours to get to your resort.  My guess is that you'll be there between noon and 1:00 p.m.  Do not forget, if you take advantage of the luggage service, your luggage will likely arrive in your room about three to four hours after you arrive.

    Have a great time planning your vacation, Ron!  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
