    how often does the magical express leave the airport and how long is the trip to pop centry hotel

    Hi Pete,

    I hope you're getting super excited for your upcoming visit to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" this fall! Between Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, the all-new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and weather that is typically quite lovely, October is a GREAT time to visit!

    I'm happy to let you know that the Disney's Magical Express bus service runs constantly, 24 hours a day. After your plane lands, I'd plan on it taking 15 - 20 minutes to walk to the Disney's Magical Express location at Terminal B, Level 1 where you'll find a friendly Disney Cast Member there waiting to scan your MagicBand so that you can begin your magical vacation! You'll be guided to a queue for a bus along with fellow travelers who are also staying at your Disney Resort hotel or another one nearby. It could take up to a half an hour or so before your departure, as they typically like to make sure the bus is relatively full before heading out, and once your bus leaves, the drive time to Disney's Pop Century Resort can definitely vary based on current traffic conditions and the order in which the bus driver stops at different Resort hotels to drop off Guests. I usually plan on it taking around 45 - 60 minutes, though. You'll be at your Disney Resort hotel before you know it and ready to hit the ground running!

    Did you know that the Disney Skyliner will be open by the time you visit? I cannot WAIT to soar through the skies on this all-new way to get around! The great news for you is that there will be a station right between Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort, so it will be easy peasy for you to get to both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Pete, and please feel free to come see us again with any other questions you may have as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation this fall!
