    If the airlines changes our flight, do we have to contact DME or will they be notified by the airlines?

    Hi Craig!  Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I love that when using Disney's Magical Express complimentary airport transportation, the magic of my Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins before I have even left the airport!  Being warmly greeted by the Cast Members at the airport and settling in for a relaxing ride aboard the motorcoach to my Disney Resort Hotel really gets my vacation started on the right foot.

    I've also been receiving flight change notifications for my vacation as the airlines have been tweaking their schedules.  For your arrival, if the change is not significant (say within perhaps 30 minutes or so of your original flight), I wouldn't worry too much about it.  Disney's Magical Express buses leave pretty much continually from the airport, as Guests arrive and fill the buses.  If the change is a significant difference, or if you will be arriving very early in the morning or late at night, I would call Disney's Magical Express at 1-866-599-0951 to update your flight arrival time so they know when to expect you.  It is my understanding that Disney's Magical Express does not receive direct notifications from the airlines of flight changes.

    If your departure flight has changed, you will definitely want to call Disney's Magical Express and update your flight information.  Unlike buses departing from the airport, return trips are scheduled and Guests are assigned to a specific motorcoach departure time, approximately 3 hours prior to the scheduled flight departure.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your visit to Walt Disney World Resort
