    How long does it take to get from Orlando International Airport to the Grand Floridian via Magical Express? How many stops does it make?

    Hi, Angela!

    Thanks so much for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Traveling from the Orlando International Airport to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa can take up to 60 minutes. Depending on the traffic in the city, this magical ride can take some time. During some of our most recent trips to this beautiful resort, getting to this resort has been the last stop. Starting with Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, then on to Disney's Contemporary Resort, followed by Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and then arriving to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. 

    Sometimes the stop doesn't include all of these resorts, as the Cast Members driving the Magical Express have various travel assignments causing the route to change and arrival times to differ. 

    The stops at each resort are often quick, as guests unload the bus and head to check-in or catch a bus or Monorail to the parks. 

    Overall, I would suggest to plan 45-60 minutes of travel time from the airport to your resort! 

    Enjoy your magical vacation! If you have more questions, visit with us again!
