    Is Magical Express slow? My husband said that it could take over an hour to get to our resort. He wants to take a taxi or something like that. I don’t, I want to save the money.

    Hi Hope,

    I'm a huge fan of Magical Express!  Is it slow?  I guess it depends on how many flights are arriving at the same time as yours.  It can get quite crowded, and I have had to wait for up to a half hour before boarding my bus, but usually the lines at Magical Express move fairly quickly.

    It probably will take you at least an hour to get to your resort once you factor in the time it takes to get to the Magical Express Terminal, wait for your bus, board and travel.  However, I think it would take just as long if you had to go to baggage claim, wait for your luggage and take a cab.  Unless you are traveling with only carry on luggage, in my opinion taking a cab won't really save you much time.

    Now, if you don't check any luggage, you may want to consider getting a cab.  You could have them stop at a convenience store along the way and pick up water to keep in your room. 

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
