    Hi Moms Panal! Generally speaking, can you estimate the amount of time it might take from disembarking the plane to arrival at the resort? my flight is on a 9/9/12, its a Sunday, landing at 235 and we are staying at Post Orleans Riverside. Thanks a bunch!!

    Hi Elissa, I assume you're taking Disney's Magical Express Service to your hotel and that you're not going to be picking up bags at the luggage carousel. If this is the case, I'd allow about 15 minutes to stop at the restroom and walk from your gate to the ME check in desk. Assume you'll wait 10-15 minutes for your bus to depart, and that it will take about an hour to get to the hotel. (The ride is less than that, but you may stop at other resorts.) Given all that, it's likely you'll be at Port Orleans about 1.5 hours after you land. If you're planning for meal reservations, I typically tell people to not make reservations until 3 hours after their scheduled arrival. This allows for a minor flight delay, check in time, and transportation to your meal destination. Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if we can provide additional assistance.
