    Is it possible to get from MCO to AoA via magic express and arrive at Chef Mickey in 4 hours?

    Hi Debbie,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You're mentioning two very fun and very favorite Walt Disney World experiences — Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Chef Mickey's. Sounds to me like you have some amazingly fun Walt Disney World vacation plans!

    When we travel to Walt Disney World via Orlando International Airport, we always make a point to travel in the comfort and convenience of Disney's Magical Express. For me, personally, it always feels like your Disney magic begins when you board Disney's Magical Express. The typical travel time from airport to the Resort hotels is usually estimated as 45 to 75 minutes, and that will vary with the time of day and the Resort hotel. I will share that in my personal experience it is more like 40 minutes on average (and I am averaging a lot of trips to a lot of Walt Disney World Resort hotels over a lot of years). I think if you are allowing 4 hours, you are allowing ample time to get to Disney's Art of Animation Resort and then head to Chef Mickey's for all your fun.

    Debbie, please do say a big "Hiya, Pal!" to Mickey!

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
