    Planning ahead for our January Land/Sea/Land trip. We land at MCO at 11:30. Plan to take Magical Express to Wilderness Lodge, then it's off to the MK. How long should we plan for to get to MK? What time should we make our first FastPass+ reservation?

    Hi Kristi,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I usually plan for it to take about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to get checked in at the resort after your plane lands. It can definitely take less time, but sometimes you'll need to wait a bit for the Magical Express, and it does make multiple stops.

    Once you check in, I'd probably plan on another hour to stop in your room (if available), take the boat, and get through the front entrance.

    You may also want to add a little buffer of time, just in case your flight is delayed.

    I hope that helps! Have a great vacation!
