    Hi. I was wondering. Roughly how long is the journey from the airport to the all star music resort on the Disney express. I get it depends on other stops but was wondering on the average time. We will be with a 2 year old.

    Hi Maurice!

    Disney's Magical Express is the perfect way to start your vacation because you will be able to travel from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel without having to worry about rental cars, navigation or parking. Plus, I love that my little ones can enjoy Disney cartoons and other entertainment during the trip so we can get excited about the magic ahead!

    I recommend that you plan three hours between the time your flight is scheduled to arrive and when you will be at Disney's All-Star Music Resort for the first item in your vacation itinerary. This will give you plenty of time to get through the airport, collect your luggage at baggage claim if you need to, catch your bus, travel to Walt Disney World Resort and navigate any traffic you may hit. Occasionally, I have found that I can get there faster, but I like to plan plenty of time so we never feel rushed as we start our vacation. Plus, if I'm traveling with my little ones, it always takes us a little bit of extra time to get through the airport. (Since the trip can take a little bit of time, I always have everyone in my family use the restroom before boarding the bus and make sure we have a few snacks for the bus ride to avoid hungry tummies!)

    Maurice, I'm so excited to hear that you are planning a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation with your little one! I brought my boys to meet Mickey Mouse for the first time when they were little Mouseketeers and we made incredible 'Core Memories' together during these trips. Be sure that you add Memory Maker during your vacation so you can save all of the moments you make together enjoying the theme parks!

    Let us know if we can help you again as you continue planning your vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
