    How early do we need to meet at Magical Express to leave Disney? Our flights are at 5:40pm

    Hi Amy,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  It's always a sad day when you have to step back onto Disney's Magical Express to leave Walt Disney World for Orlando International Airport.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I've even shed a few tears about it over the years.  Actually, that bus ride is usually when I start planning my next visit!

    The day before your scheduled flight you will receive a Transportation Notice on the door of your Disney resort hotel room, which will list the flight information, pickup time and pickup location information for the Guests on your reservation.  Your motorcoach pickup time will be about 3 hours prior to your flight departure time if it's a domestic flight and 4 hours prior if it's an international flight.  That Transportation Notice will also provide information on luggage handling and resort airline check-in service.  If you don't receive a Transportation Notice, just call the front desk or (866) 599-0951 for assistance.  Also, be sure to keep that paper with you - you'll need to hand it to the motorcoach driver before you board since MagicBands aren't currently used for this purpose.

    If you'd like to make or confirm your arrival or departure reservation details, just give the folks at Disney's Magical Express a call at (407) 939-1936 and they'd be happy to help.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation, Amy!  Please visit us again if we can help answer any other questions as you put the final pixie dust on your plans.
