    We are taking the ME once we arrive in Orlando. How much time should we allow for traveling from the airport to our resort? We want to get our vacation started asap!!!

    Hi Kelsi!  I know what you mean about getting your vacation started as soon as possible!  On average, you should be at your resort within 60 minutes or so, but I like to budget 90 minutes, just in case you end up being one of the last drop off resorts.  Also, in case you haven't heard, Disney now offers online check-in up to 10 days prior to your arrival date.  This can also be a great way to jump start your vacation as you'll cut your time down at check-in significantly.  Just click "My Disney Vacation" in the upper right hand corner of any page at

    Have a magical vacation!  Diane  )
