    We will be visiting WDW in September. Our plane arrives at about 10:15 a.m. We are staying at All Star Sports. How long will it take to get to the resort from the airport and will we be able to check in that early?

    Hi Jackie!

         May I first mention that you have a fabulous name?  Another Jackie that loves Disney World - YEAH!  Assuming that you will be using Disney's Magical Express from the airport, here is the info that you need....From the moment you step into the airport terminal until you arrive at All Star Sports will take around two hours.  Since you will be arriving before the scheduled check in time, you will actually be able to participate in a brand new alert system!  Disney has just begun to offer an optional service that will send a text or phone message to your cell phone when your room is ready.  I must mention that standard text messaging rates will apply - do I sound like a lawyer???

         Simply check-in at the Lobby when you arrive and you will be given your Keys to the Kingdom cards.  These cards will serve as your room key.  If you opt to have the message sent to your cell phone, the room number will be sent to you as soon as it is ready.  Or you may opt to call the specified number throughout the day to check on your room's status.  Personally, I much prefer the cell phone option!  In the meantime, your luggage will be held for you and then delivered to your room.  Have an amazing time - September is right around the corner!

    Much pixie dust,
