    How long should I expect the magical express to take? my flight is arriving at 2:15 and I am staying at Allstar Music. When will I expect to get to my hotel? Also have rez at Kona café at 8. If I go to MK that night can I take the monorail to Polynesi

    Hi, Alexis!

    Once you've boarded Disney's Magical Express, your travel time on the motorcoach from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel will be approximately 60 minutes. If your flight touches down at 2:15, you can reasonably expect to arrive at Disney's All-Star Music around 4:00/4:30. This estimate factors in the time you will need to exit the plane and get from the airport gate area to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center in the Main Terminal Building (B side, Level 1). 

    I never miss dining at Kona Cafe during a trip to Walt Disney World Resort! You are sure to enjoy the wonderful island-inspired cuisine, specialty tropical drinks and friendly service. If you visit Magic Kingdom on the evening of your arrival, you can absolutely take the monorail to Disney's Polynesian Resort. You'll want to hop on the Resort monorail line (rather than the Express monorail) and in 3 quick stops and less than 10 minutes, you'll be at the Polynesian! The monorail platform is on the 2nd floor of the Great Ceremonial House, so once you step off the monorail and walk through the resort's automatic doors, you'll see Kona Cafe immediately to your left. 

    Wishing you a magical stay at All-Star Music and a sublime meal at Kona Cafe! Bon appetit!
