    We will be going in Sept to Bay Lake Tower. Trying to save money and thinking about DME. How long of a bus ride to the resort will we have? And how early do you think will they pick us up to take the flight home? Thanks!!

    Hi Deana,

    Disney's Magical Express is a great way to get to your resort.  The actual ride is quite quick - 35 minutes, or so.  I generally expect that I will be in my resort 2 hours after my plane lands.  This takes into account any time spent walking to Magical Express, waiting for the bus, boarding and stopping at resorts to drop of other guests.  It's often shorter, but if I plan for a 2 hour trip, I have a bit of a buffer when planning my dining reservations or any other time sensitive activities.

    On the way home, your Magical Express will pick you up 3 hours prior to your flight.  It seems like a lot of time, but again, Disney wants to make sure that you have plenty of time to get boarding passes and go through security with no hassle.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
