    Hi! I had a question about the Magical Express. How long do you normally have to wait around before boarding the bus? My BFF and I will be arriving in the airport at 5:35 am, and want to eat breakfast before our 12:30 lunch reservation; will we have time?

    Hi Brianna! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with best friends, so I'm excited to hEAR about your upcoming plans for January. I'm sure the two of you will have an absolutely magical time on your visit. 

    Brianna, Disney's Magical Express motorcoach buses run continuously from the Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort throughout the day. I've waited as little as two to three minutes and as long as 20 minutes when I've taken advantage of this complimentary transportation option. There's really no way to know, so my advice is to go ahead and stop by the airport's main terminal food court to grab breakfast. Most restaurants open around 4:30 or 5:00 a.m., so you'll have plenty of options. I think you'll be much happier to hit the ground running if you take the time to refuel before you board a motorcoach. Once you've finished eating, you'll want to head to Terminal B, Level One to the Ground Transportation area. Please have your MagicBands handy for check in with a Cast Member. Since you are arriving after 5:00 a.m., you have the option to tag your bags for the luggage service to your Disney Resort hotel. It may take a few hours for your luggage to arrive, so be sure to keep anything you may need to start your vacation with you in your carry-on. 

    Enjoy spending this special time at the Walt Disney World Resort with your best friend, Brianna! I highly recommend purchasing Memory Maker, so the PhotoPass Photographers can capture the wonderful moments you'll experience during your stay. I know you'll love having these photos as keepsakes for yEARs to come. If you need any further help with your 2020 trip plans, please let us know.

    Have a MAGICAL day!
