    Our plane lands at noon Jan 27th, barring any flight delays what would be the earliest Fast Pass selection time we should make at MK? Also should we try to check in early at POP or wait until we come back from the park that evening around 8pm?

    Hi Wendy!

         Typically it takes between an hour to two hours to get to your Walt Disney World Resort if you are using Magical Express (it could be shorter or longer than this average time depending on what time of day that you fly in and how many other Guests are coming in around the same time as you).  I would budget about 30 minutes to check into Pop Century and put your things in your room.  The you will have to get on a bus to the Magic Kingdom which is about a 20 minute ride once you are on the bus.  So I would recommend making your FastPass+ selections for 3:00 pm and beyond (if you make your first  FastPass+ selection for 3:00 pm then you will have between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm to ride that particular ride with the FastPass+).  You could wait to check into Pop Century until later but you still will have to take the Magical Express bus from the Orlando International Airport to the Pop Century Resort because the Magical Express bus does not drop Guests off at theme parks; it only drops Guests off to Walt Disney World Resorts. So then you still would have to take a bus from the Pop Century Resort to the Magic Kingdom.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
