    Hi Jodie!

    One of the reasons why I love Walt Disney World Resort so much is because we can leave ALL of the driving to someone else. There are even some Disney fans who consider Disney's Magical Express to be their first and last attraction ride of their Disney vacation.

    Ideally speaking everyone would make a reservation for their seat on Disney's Magical Express from Orlando's International Airport so an appropriate number of buses would be scheduled to whisk every excited vacation go-er to their Disney Resort Hotel the moment they reach the complimentary transportation. However, life happens, planes get delayed, and some people make last minute vacation plans. I had a last-minute Walt Disney World Resort trip pop up last year where I was either unaware or completely missed the memo that I should have scheduled my own Magical Express reservation, so I showed up to the check-in podium completely clueless. I'm happy to share from my own experience that as long as you have your MagicBand or Disney Resort Hotel reservation number, you'll be welcomed to your respective motorcoach.

    Pro Tips: 1) When using Disney's Magical Express without a reservation, you will be responsible for pulling your own luggage from baggage claim. You'll take it with you through the Magical Express line and up to your bus, where it will be loaded and then unloaded for you once you reach your Disney Resort Hotel. It will not be delivered to your room.  2) The Front Desk Cast Members at your Disney Resort Hotel will be able to schedule your return ride so everything goes smoothly on the way back.

    I hope this helped, Jodie, and We'll See You Real Soon!
