    How long does it take to travel from the Orlando airport to the Port Orleans-Riverside resort? We are using the Disney Magical Express and was unsure what time to use as our resort arrival time. Thank you!

    Hi, Emily!

    Once you board Disney's Magical Express at Orlando Airport, your commute time to Disney's Port Orleans Riverside will be about 45 minutes - 1 hour.

    After you land, you will want to head to B Side - Level 1 and follow the signs to the Magical Express motorcoaches. If you tagged your bags with the yellow tags at your home airport, your luggage will be magically transported directly to your room. If you did not tag your bags OR you are arriving between 10pm and 5am, you will want to stop at baggage claim on Level 2 of the airport to collect your luggage.

    The ride to your resort will be fun for your family. Your friendly driver will explain the transfer, then show a video of what to expect during your Walt Disney World vacation. The time will zoom by, and before you know it you will be pulling into Riverside, you new home for next few days.

    Wishing you "happy travels" to Orlando and we will See You Real Soon!
