    How long does it take the Magical Express to go from the airport to Disney Grand Floridian Hotel?

    Hi Alexandre,

    The Grand Floridian is Disney's flagship resort, and is truly magnificent.  You are in for a real treat!  The folks at Magical Express estimate that from the time you arrive at the counter to check-in to arrival at your resort can take between one and two hours.  In my experience, this is a very conservative estimate.  While times are approximate, and can vary based upon the number of resorts your bus stops at on the way to the Grand Floridian and traffic, I would say a bit over an hour is more realistic.  I have had trips where I was at the front desk exactly 60 minutes from the time I disembarked the plane, and others that were closer to 75 minutes. (Most of these trips involved a "potty break" at the airport, too.)  Remember, by using Magical Express, you will be able to bypass baggage claim at the airport, which is a huge time saver.

    Have a wonderful trip!
