    What time should I leave Hollywood Studios to get back to AS Movies Resort in order to board ME for a 4:45 flight out? What time should I expect to arrive in MK if my flight arrives in Orlando at 9:30 am, I use ME and I am in AS Movie resort? Thanks!

    Hi, Amy!

    Ah...I see the planner in you...and I LOVE IT! (Me, too!)

    Let's take your arrival question first. If you arrive on time at Orlando International Airport (MCO), you'll head directly to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center, located on the B side on Level 1 (look for the signs for Ground Transportation). Once in line for the motorcoach to Disney's All-Star Movies Resort, you should be on your way in 10-30 minutes, depending upon several variables. The drive, then, should take about 30 minutes, but you'll hardly notice as you'll be watching a very entertaining welcome video while heading to your resort. (Mickey thinks of everything...)

    Cast Members suggest that Guests allow 1 1/2-2 hours between departure and intended arrival time while using Walt Disney World's complimentary transportation, and Magical Express typically picks Guests up 3 hours prior to departure. Thus, you'll likely receive notice of a 1:45 ME pick-up time, and so should be at the Disney's Hollywood Studios bus stop back to AS Movies no later than 11:45.

    In a pinch, we've occasionally taken a cab from a park back to the resort, which costs a little cash, but can allow you just one more hour in the park.

    Have fun making the most of your hours in Walt Disney World, Amy! Send more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
