[QUOTE=KittieKChick;936331]From MCO, how long is the ride on ME? Anyone ever timed it?[/QUOTE]
The reported average time from airplane exit to resort drop-off is 70 minutes. This is comparable to the time it would take if using a car service or rental car, because with DME you get to skip baggage claim … no need to wait for your bags at the carousel.
I’ve used DME 3 times: Mothers Day 2005 at 9:30 a.m., a Saturday in Nov. 2006 at 10 p.m., and last week on a Saturday at 8:30 a.m. From walking off the airplane to being dropped off at my resort (in the same order as above), here were my times: 63 minutes to Caribbean Beach Resort, 56 minutes to POFQ, and 57 minutes to Polynesian.
Don’t forget, these times include walking from the gate to the monorail, and so on (just like everyone has to do no matter what ground transportation you’re using).
