    We are staying at BLT with our 2YO next year and want to add 1nt to the beginning of the trip. We would like to stay at either CCV or AoA for the first night. Which of these 2 resorts is quickest to reach via Magical Express? Don’t want to be on bus long!

    Hi, Alexandra!

    Adding an extra night to your magical vacation sounds great! The more magic, the better!

    Regardless of where you stay, count on 45 minutes - 1 hour of travel time once you are on the road on your Magical Express motorcoach. Which resorts get dropped off first will vary based on the arriving guests and where they are staying. I suggest staying at your resort of choice, because any time difference will be such a small amount of time, it really will not change your overall experience. 

    Because you will be at Bay Lake Tower for the bulk of your nights, I would suggest Art of Animation over Copper Creek Villas. I think it will just offer a much different experience, and your little one will get a kick out of the larger than life décor all around Art of Animation. But, the choice is yours!

    After your first night, you can drop your bags at Bell Services and they will gladly transfer your luggage to Bay Lake Tower. Remember that check-out will be at 11am, and your new room may not be ready until 4pm so plan accordingly by keeping any necessities with you. After dropping your luggage, you can head out for the day, whether it is to a theme park, water park, or a fun day at Disney Springs!

    Enjoy your stay at whichever two resorts you end up choosing. Good luck!
