Disney's Magical Express

    Michael from MI Asked

    If my plane lands at 10:39am what time will I arrive at Old Key West Resort if I get my bags after I land and ride the Magical Express to the resort?

    Hi Michael!

    Welcome back to planDisney! This is a great question! We usually take an early morning flight as well, as I want to be able to get to our resort and begin enjoying the magic as soon as possible! While there is always some variation, I usually anticipate about 90 minutes from our scheduled landing time until we arrive at our resort via Disney's Magical Express.

    We tend to travel on weekdays, so on the weekends, it could take closer to 2 hours because of the increased number of travelers, how long it takes for your bags to hit baggage claim, and other factors. The actual Disney’s Magical Express ride from the time you leave the airport until you arrive at your resort is usually 40 to 50 minutes. Each bus may drop off at more than one resort, so that can add a little time. As I travel with four kids, and a Starbucks loving husband, my 90-minute plan usually includes a pit stop at the airport Starbucks and a restroom break. I would anticipate you would be arriving in time for a quick lunch at Good’s Food to Go, or perhaps even a late lunch reservation at Olivia’s Cafe, and plenty of time to hit the pool for the afternoon!

    Have a wonderful visit, Michael, and enjoy Disney’s Old Key West Resort!
