    We are landing at 2:35 and are going to the not so scary party. Will we be at our hotel by 4 do you think? We want to get to Magic kindom as soon as possible. Thank you!

    Hi Heather!  There are many variables to consider when arriving to Walt Disney World and trying to figure out the timing.  Airlines can and often are delayed due to weather, mechanical, and other issues.  The baggage claims tend to be a bit slow in Orlando as I am sure the amount of traffic is far greater there then most other airports.  Once you are on the road leaving to head to Walt Disney World and your resort it will take you about 30 minutes. It is definitely possible to arrive to the resort by 4:00pm but also just as possible to arrive later.

    If you are using the Magical Express buses then you will not know if your resort will be the first or the last drop off so this will add time. Remember also that you will need to bring your Mickey's Not So Scary Costumes with you in the carry on luggage since it will be several hours before you will have your luggage delivered when using ME.

    Traveling is stressful at its best so just do the best you can with your plans and arrive at the Magic Kingdom as soon as possible after you check-in and settle into your room. The party will officially start at 7:00pm that night.
