    Amanda from ME Asked

    Hello, The website says the Magical Express will pick us up at the resort 3 hours prior to departure time, but will they pick us up before 8am? What if my flight is 7am? Will the Magical Express pick us up at 4am? Could we still do airline check-in?

    Welcome, Amanda, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Disney's Magical Express
    is a 24-hour service for guests staying at any of the Walt Disney World resorts.
    If your flight is scheduled for 7am, you will depart the resort at 4am, which gives you enough time to travel to the airport, check your luggage and make it to your gate. You'll receive your official boarding time/letter for the Magical Express the day before you check out of the resort, typically hanging on your outside doorknob. However, if you don't receive this information on your door, you can stop by the front desk to get a copy. Keep this information handy when you board the bus, as the driver will request this from you. 

    Resort Airline Check-in is not available each day until 5am. So, you will need to bring your luggage with you to travel underneath the motor coach back to Orlando International Airport. Sometimes, my family chooses to take our luggage with us on Disney's Magical Express and not complete the resort check-in process. The Cast Members are very nice and helpful and will assist you with getting your luggage from your resort room onto the bus. 

    Enjoy your time at Walt Disney World, Amanda! If more questions come up about your trip, stop by and visit with us again!
