Disney's Magical Express transportation

    Timothy from PA Asked

    Hey, We are arriving after 11pm in Orlando and staying at the airport hotel. Will we still be able to use the magical express the following morning to get to our resort?

    Hello Timothy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family and I have often arrived at Orlando International Airport in the wee hours of the morning. It is often preferable to start your Walt Disney World Resort vacation off bright and early the next day than it is to force a late Disney's Magical Express transfer.

    When scheduling Disney's Magical Express, the most important date is you Check-In Date. As the benefit of Disney's Magical Express is for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to utilize on their Check-In and Check-Out dates, you are more than welcome to book for the next morning (your Check-In Date). Just make a note when you book Disney's Magical Express online or when you speak with a Cast Member at (407)939-1936 to inform them of your plans.

    In previous visits, I have been asked for a preferable travel time from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort which allows me to fully personalize our first day experience.

    Remember to pick up your own luggage from the baggage carousel when you arrive at Orlando International Airport as the luggage delivery service does not operate from 10:00pm to 5:00am. You will have to personally bring your luggage directly to Disney's Magical Express the next day.

    To further expedite your arrival, be sure to use the Online Resort Check-In for your Walt Disney World Resort Reservations up to 60 days in advance of your vacation.

    Happy Travels!
