    How often does airport shuttle run and how much time does it take to get from the airport to Fort Wilderness

    Greetings, Gary, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this great question!

    Disney's Magical Express complimentary transportation is just one of the many unique Disney Resort Hotel Guest Amenities. I'm so glad to hear you'll be utilizing this convenient service.

    Gary, you'll be pleased to hear that Disney's Magical Express service currently operates continuously 24-hours per day, but, please keep in mind that if your flight arrives before 5:00 AM or after 10:00 PM the luggage service does not operate. If your flight arrives before 5:00 AM or after 10:00 PM you will need to head to Baggage Claim, collect your luggage and take it with you to "Disney's Magical Express" located Side B, Level 1, Ground Transportation.

    Transportation time from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort takes approximately 35-minutes (depending on traffic flow). Beyond that, arrival at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground may take a little longer depending on how many Disney Resorts the motorcoach stops at beforehand. I would be prepared for closer to 1-hour or more transport times, especially during busier times of the year.

    Consider customizing your vacation with such details as Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ experiences and the personalization of your MagicBands through My Disney Experience.

    I hope this information is helpful, Gary, we wish you a wonderful vacation and look forward to assisting you in the near future with your planning.

    Best Disney Wishes~
