    I can not get a Disney room when we fly in. If I stay at airport can the magical express take us the next morning?

    Hi Britney and thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can tell you from personal experience, you can do this and it's a simple and easy process. When I made my reservation with Disney's Magical Express, the Cast Member assured me that the process would be seamless and they were right.

    You will want to be sure to grab any of your checked luggage when you arrive at Orlando International Airport. When you return to the airport the next morning and board your motorcoach, your items will be stowed safely with the other Guests' carry-on bags, strollers, etc.

    I remember landing in Orlando really late. I went to the airport  hotel with the plan of sleeping late and then making my way to the magic. That, of course, didn't happen as I was too excited to sleep. The next morning, I woke up early and took a hotel shuttle to the airport. The driver was great and dropped me off as close to Magical Express as he was able and my Disney vacation officially began! Regardless of where you are dropped of, proceed to the Ground Transportation Area on Side B, Level 1. There are signs conveniently located to help you find your way to the Magical Express check-in area. Upon arrival, the Cast Members will greet you and you will be on your way to Walt Disney World Resort.

    When your vacation is concluding, your departure will be just like any other Magical Express departure. Your Transportation Notice will be delivered to your Resort hotel room the day before you are scheduled to checkout.
    The day of your departure, be sure to take advantage of the Resort Airline Check-In service. Then, enjoy your day at Walt Disney World Resort before the motorcoach arrives for your return trip to the airport.

    Thanks and have a magical day!
