    We are planning our Disney World vacation this October, and are staying at SSR. My brother works for an airline and we are able to get 'buddy passes', (stand by) but I am not sure if you can fly stand by with the Magical Express...any idea eligible? TY!

    Hi Dawn!

    October is a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort.  Weather is much more favorable than the summer, crowd levels are low, and, of course, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party happens!  Loads to see and do during this festive fall season!

    Magical Express is a wonderful service offered solely to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  Although it is always recommended that you pre-schedule your ME transfer, it is not required to take advantage of this perk.  If you are flying stand by, you can call ME and let them know that you will be arriving on day X and would need to use ME, but you do not know your flight.  Once you've arrived at Orlando International, you will need to pick up your luggage, as ME cannot provide you with tags unless you have confirmed flights.  You can head to the Magical Express counter, on the B side of the airport, and provide them with your resort confirmation number.  They will print out a voucher for you and your party, and direct you to the appropriate resort bus, and you'll be on your way.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
