Boardwalk & Magical Express

Which resorts share the Magical Express bus recently with the Boardwalk Resort? And what order does the bus stop at the resorts? Trying to figure out my first day, since I will be arriving early enough to hit a park. Thanks!

There is never a set route. It is based on need. Just sit back and enjoy the ride and try not to plan down to the last second.

I have stayed at POR for several years the week after Thanksgiving and BW has been on the POR run.

As noted above there is no set routes for ME. How many resorts, and which resorts, are assigned to a particular bus is based on the number of expected guests on a particular day. The actual order of drop off is entirely up to the driver.

I spend a fair amount of time at BWV....it used to be that the DME stopped at YC, BC, BW and CBR. Then, it changed to POR/FQ, BW and on to other resorts. That's the way it's been the last few times I've used it.

BUT...do not plan on that happening!! You will be better off just planning on arriving at BW about 80 mins after leaving the plane. It will probably take less time, but it's always best to prepare for a longer wait!!

I rode it to BWV in April, we stopped at POR first. We arrived at the resort about 80 minutes after landing.

Last month we had stops at POR, POFQ and CBR before arriving at BWV. It was our longest ride by far on ME because the driver announced he had a "brain hiccup" and was supposed to go to both POR and POFQ and had forgotten the second resort. He apologized that he would have to backtrack before heading to BWV. It ended up being a few minutes under 2 hours between deplanning and arriving at our resort.

So, usually our ME experience has been under 90 minutes, but not last time.

Thanks everyone for posting your experience. It's my first time taking Magical Express - so I just wanted an idea of what to expect. I'm going with the flow - though hoping for "DeadHeads" experience!! 65 minutes would be awesome!!
