    Ben from LA Asked

    Do I need to link my magical express reservation with my disney experience or magic band? I have my room, my dining reservations(no dining plan) and my magic bands taken care of. I will purchase tix and link them as well. Anything else I'm missing?

    Greetings, Ben! It sounds like you are getting everything set for a perfectly relaxing vacation. I adore taking Magical Express from MCO Airport, because it truly feels like my vacation has started as soon as I roll up to the welcome kiosks.

    Be sure to either wear your MagicBands on your arrival day or pack them in your carry on, since you will need to scan them at the Magical Express kiosks to pull up your Resort reservation and board the correct bus with the help of on-hand Cast Members. If you have already made your Disney’s Magical Express reservations, have your hotel and dining reservations all ready to go, the last thing you will need are Park Tickets and FastPass+ Reservations. You can’t make a FP+ Reservation without a park ticket, so you’ll want to purchase those and link them up with your My Disney Experience well before your 60 day mark to be sure you get the attractions you want the most. You can make up to three FP+ Reservations a day, and then after using those, you can pull up the My Disney Experience Mobile App right in the park to make a fourth, a fifth and so on.

    Don’t forget to use Online Resort Check-In in the week before your arrival, to mark any room requests and be able to skip your Resort Front Desk entirely! Whether you are traveling by airplane, train, Pony Express, or Mr. Toad’s wild car ride to Orlando Airport, I know you will have a fantastic trip! If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know! ~ Lindsey P.
