    Hi! I am trying to find affordable flights into MCO but the only one gets in at 11:00p. Then we have to take the bus to the All-Star Music or Sports Resort. Any expected time frame it would take to arrive at the hotel, I want my girls ready for opening MK!

    Hello Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thank you so much for stopping by to ask a question about planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort.  It would be my pleasure to help you out today.

    Disney's Magical Express is complimentary round trip motor coach transportation between Orlando International Airport and your Disney Resort hotel.  I love using it and find it saves us lots of money over renting a car or taking a shuttle service.  If your plane is expected to land at 11:00 p.m. I would allow time to get to baggage claim, grab your bags and head to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome center.  This could take up to 30-45 minutes itself.   Once at the Welcome Center you will scan your MagicBands and be directed to a bus line.   I have waited as little as five minutes for a bus to depart and other times I have waited up to 30 minutes.   The ride to Walt Disney World Resort takes about 45 minutes, so I would say you would be arriving at your hotel about 1:00 a.m.  The bus to the All-Star Resorts do stop at all 3 hotels so you may have to drop off other Guests as well, before you arrive at your destination. If your girls are good sleepers I suggest trying to get them to nap on the flight and the Magical Express.   You do want them ready for a big morning of exploring all the wonder Magic Kingdom has to offer.  

    I hope this has helped.  Please stop in again anytime.  All the Disney Parks Moms Panelists love to lend a helping hand every chance we get.
