    Hi!! im going to wdw on october 8th to the kidiana village! This wil be my husbands first trip since 2004. Our questions is about the Magical Expess. We would like to know how many stops we will have before the kidani viallge, Even if you can give me apx.

    Hi Afton! October is such a great month to visit Walt Disney World -- you're going to have so much fun! 

    I wish I could tell you how many stops Disney's Magical Express airport shuttle service will make before dropping you off at Kidani Village, but that answer is one of life's great mysteries. On my trips, my resort has sometimes been the first stop from the airport, but on other vacations the motorcoach has stopped at one or two other resorts first. I don't think there's necessarily a set schedule -- the number of stops depends on the number of guests who arrive at the same time as you and the resorts to which they're headed. Disney estimates that your travel time from the airport to your resort will range from 45 to 75 minutes on the Magical Express. If your resort is the first stop, you can be there as soon as one hour after you step off the plane. On my most recent vacation I, like you, stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and the motorcoach stopped at two other resorts before we arrived at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and Kidani. Because we also had to wait a bit for other guests to board the bus and we encountered some traffic delays, it took two hours before we arrived at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The Magical Express generally doesn't take that long, but for planning purposes, I'd estimate that you'll be at your resort one to two hours after your plane lands.

    Have a magical vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
