    Hi 2 questions please how long does it take to get to POP from airport by shuttle, arrive 11:23 am have res at GF at 4:30 pm, hoping to swim first? Also can you please tell me a few ways to get to GF for reservation we won't have a car. Thank you

    Hi Stacey!  Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When using Disney's Magical Express complimentary airport transportation, a good rule of thumb is to allow between 45 and 90 minutes to reach your Disney Resort Hotel.  I would expect you should arrive at Disney's Pop Century Resort by around 1:00 pm or so.  Because traveling from your hotel to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will require a transfer, I would plan to allow 90 minutes to arrive in time for your reservation.  That should give you time for a quick dip in the pool.  Keep in mind that check-in time at Disney Resort Hotels is 3:00 pm, so your room may not be ready when you arrive.

    To reach Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you can go to any theme park or Disney Springs and transfer there.  Your most efficient options will be to take a bus from Disney's Pop Century Resort to Magic Kingdom Park and then a water taxi or monorail to the Grand Floridian, or to take the Disney Skyliner to Disney's Hollywood Studios, and then a bus from there to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort.

    A quicker option would be to use Disney Minnie Van service.  These cute polka-dotted vehicles would be a fun way to arrive in style for your dinner.  Minnie Vans can be requested and paid for through the Lyft app, and will provide door-to-door service.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Have a wonderful trip!
