    Once we fly in at MCO airport, how often does the Disney bus leave the airport? How long does it take to get to DW? We are staying at Wilderness Lodge and would like to know about when we will arrive? So we can start planning our fun for us and the kids.

    Hi Amy!

    Unfortunately there's no set schedule.  It depends on how crowded Disney's Magical Express is, how many other guests are on the bus when you get there (you won't have to wait for a bus to be absolutely full, but...).  A good conservative estimate is two hours after you land, assuming you are going to let Disney's Magical Express pick up your luggage.  If you are picking up your luggage, then you should plan on 2 hours after you have your luggage in-hand.  If you feel lucky, then it might only take 60 to 90 minutes.

    By the way, I think you made a great choice.  The Wilderness Lodge is my absolute favorite resort hotel at Walt Disney World.  Be sure to make an Advanced Dining Reservation for the Whispering Canyon Cafe.  It is a lot of fun for all ages.  If you go, be sure to ask for ketchup and insist on getting a large drink!

    Have a magical vacation!
