    Taking the magical express for first time this November. We are staying at the Caribbean Beach resort. Any ideas on what drop off we may be? We are arriving at MCO at 10.30 am and don't want to waste a large part of the day.

    Hi, Claudia!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I have found when I use Disney's Magical Express and the luggage tags that come with the service, the amount of time it takes me to get to my resort is almost similar to the amount of time to takes for me to get my luggage (and it can take a while depending on the day) and rent a car/catch a cab. It might take longer if I have to grab my bags AND take the bus. 

    For me, I always lean toward choosing the Magical Express because it's free! I budget it will take about an hour between the time I land and the time I get to my resort. Sometimes it might take a little longer, but I try to relax and soak in the fact that I'm finally kicking off my vacation!

    I hope that helps add some perspective before your arrival! Have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort!
