    Some of the people in our group will be flying into Orlando Intl. They will not be using Disneys Magical Express on arrival as they will arrive the day before our resort reservation. Will they still be able to take advantage of this service for return trip

    Hi-Ya, Pal, as my friend Mickey Mouse says, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Deborah! I'm thrilled to hear you will be enjoying a group vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort soon.

    Disney's Magical Express is incredible. It's calming to know you'll be whisked away in Disney style to begin your adventure and sadly, even at the end of your vacation. In fact, my family fondly refers to the trip as the first "ride" of the trip. They're easily entertained when it comes to pixie dust! Yes, your group is definitely able to use Disney's Magical Express service for a return trip, even if they don't use it from Orlando International Airport to their Disney Resort Hotel. You mention that they are arriving to the airport a day early, so it may be easiest for them to stay at the airport hotel (or nearby) and return to the airport on the day of their Disney Resort Hotel check-in to still take advantage of Disney's Magical Express service. (My family did this with a late night flight once and it worked well.) They'll obviously have to get their own luggage, but they can bring it with them and still enjoy the magical ride. 

    Either way, for round-trip or a one-way ride, you'll need to arrange advance reservations. You can do so online at DisneysMagicalExpress.com or by calling the number listed on the Disney's Magical Express page of the Walt Disney World Resort website. You should be able to leave the flight information blank, or if you call simply let the Cast Member know your situation.

    Once again, Deborah, we are thrilled you've brought your question to us and would adore helping you further, should you have any additional questions or concerns. Have a magical vacation!
