    Hi! Staying at AS Movies in May. How long will it take from Magic Express at airport to check-in at hotel? We arrive just before 3pm on a Thursday. I realize it depends on how many other passengers ME is taking to resorts, but need a roundabout idea. Thx!

    Hi, Christine!   Once you are on your Magical Express motorcoach, the ride to your resort is about 45 minutes.  Don't forget to add in time to walk from your gate to Level 1 - B Side for Magical Express, tram ride to main terminal, restroom break, and waiting in line (add about 30 -  45 minutes from exiting your plane to boarding your motorcoach!)  All in, padding some time for delays, count on 2 hours from landing to checking in at your resort.  

    I timed this on a previous trip.  We landed at 9:30 a.m.   We went to All-Star Music, checked in, stopped in our room to drop our carry-ons, and took the bus to the Magic Kingdom.   At 12:30 p.m. we were seated and enjoying a fun lunch at Columbia Harbor House!  We didn't rush at all, and it was mid-summer so it was a bit busy and we had some lines.   You might make better time than we did, but this is should give you something to go on!   Good luck!
