    Love the panel! Just wondering an estimated time we would have to leave AOA on ME for an 11:00AM flight?

    Hi Ellen! When traveling out of Orlando International Airport it is always good to be there at least two hours before your flight. At certain times of the day and night the security lines can get quite long and you can't cut your timing too short because of this. Magical Express will assign a time for you but if you feel this isn't going to give you enough to relax and not be stressed just call and ask for the bus earlier.
    The time to the airport depends on the days of the week. Week days will be longer as the traffic is heavier. Also weather will impact your time as well as any unforseen occurrence such as a traffic accident along the way.
    The Magical Express bus can take 40 minutes or it can take an hour depending on the number of other stops it might be making at other resorts.
    I would leave about 8am if I was making the decision. There are great shops at the airport if you get there early and you can always grab a bite to eat there as well. I believe in traveling with as little stress as possible.
