    Hello Jessica and Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    When I step off the airplane in Orlando, I am always super excited to get my Disney vacation started. From landing to Disney's Magical Express to the lobby of Disney's Pop Century Resort, you can expect about 60 - 90 minutes to go by. Even though it is unlikely that your room will be ready, you can check-in and get the party started!  If you tag your luggage for Disney's Magical Express your bags will auto-magically arrive in your room later. If you have your bags, bell services will be happy to hold your luggage while you have lunch, explore the resort, or even swim (pack your suits in your carry on!).  

    If you have theme park tickets available on your arrival date you can head on out and enjoy the parks. Make sure and book FastPass+ selections for later afternoon so you can make the most of your afternoon and evening at the parks.

    Hope you have a fantastic time on your Disney vacation.

    See ya real soon,
