    I am going to the airport 3 days before my stay at a Disney hotel can I park my car 3 night there before my stay and use the magical express without any problems

    Hi Mayra,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this question to us!

    It sounds like you are asking about parking at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disney's Magical Express transportation. If you have a car, you would not need to use Disney's Magical Express transportation from the airport. All resort hotels have standard parking and select Disney Deluxe Resorts have valet parking (for an additional fee). When driving, you can take advantage of the parking for resort hotel guests on the day your stay begins. We only use Disney's Magical Express Transportation when we fly and do not have access to a car.

    If you will not have access to a car and are flying into the Orlando International Airport, I suggest you reserve a ride on Disney's Magical Express. You will have to give your flight information. Pick-up times are based on your flight arrival and departure information. 

    Since it sounds like your trip might be more complicated, I suggest you call and speak with a cast member at Disney's Magical Express at 407-939-1936 or you could also call and speak with a cast member in guest services. Just locate your resort hotel using the resort list and call the number indicated on your resort's homepage. Once you arrive at your resort hotel, remember that you have access to Resort Transportation as well. My family loves the resort monorail and water taxi service. The views from both are quite scenic.

    Mayra, I trust you will resolve your transportation dilemma and embark on a magical journey!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
