    What is the travel time from the airport and Pop Century Resort if we use the Disney Shuttle? I read that it may take 1-2 hours, which seems unreasonably long.

    Hi Quynh - in my experience taking the Magical Express from Orlando International Airport, it can take from one to two hours, as you read.  However, this isn't exclusively travel time on the coach -- it includes waiting in line to check in, waiting for the bus to arrive, getting on the bus, waiting for it to fill up, travel time to Walt Disney World, and travel to the resorts.  The bus will likely be serving several resorts, so you may have to travel to several resorts before arriving at yours.

    In my opinion, the benefits of the Magical Express (free, with luggage transfer), outweigh the longer travel time, but you will have to decide what is best for your family. 

    Have fun!
