    Can I add Magic Express to my reservation online or by phone only?

    Hi Heather!

    I'm so excited to see you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up in October! You'll be visiting just in time for The World's Most Magical Celebration, honoring Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary. The celebration begins on October 1, and will last for 18 months! All four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks will be getting in on the fun, with thrilling new experiences and celebrations for Guests to enjoy. The four theme park icons, which include: Cinderella Castle (Magic Kingdom Park), Spaceship Earth (Epcot), The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (Disney's Hollywood Studios), and the Tree of Life (Disney's Animal Kingdom Park) will become Beacons of Magic,  lighting up the night with wonder every evening. It's going to be amazing!

    I'm happy to hEAR you're planning to take advantage of Disney's Magical Express service - convenient, complimentary ground transportation from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to your Disney hotel. Through the end of 2021, Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels are able to enjoy this benefit as part of their Disney vacation experience. 

    A Magical Express reservation can be added to your resort reservation at any time after booking. I'm happy to let you know that you can make your reservation using this easy-to-use online form. You'll need to provide your Disney reservation confirmation information, as well as flight information for each member of your travel party. (You also have the option to call and speak to a Cast Member at (866) 599-0951.) If you use the online form, you should receive an email confirmation that your request was received, and another confirming your Disney's Magical Express reservation. I typically print the confirmation email and keep it with my travel documents. 

    Once you land at MCO, simply grab your bags from Baggage Claim and head to the Ground Transportation Area in Terminal B, Level 1, and look for the signage directing you to Disney's Magical Express. When you arrive at the Magical Express check-in area, you can present your MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile Pass, or a government-issued photo ID, and a Cast Member can assist you and guide you to your motorcoach! Then it's time to kick back and relax...your magical vacation has officially begun. Your driver will whisk you away to your resort hotel, where you'll find luggage assistance, including luggage storage and/or transport to your room.

    I hope this helps with your plans and preparations for your magical getaway!
