    We arrive at MCO at 3 pm and we have dinner reservations at 5:30 pm in Disney Springs. #1- will Magical Express drop us off in Disney Springs? #2- will 2 1/2 hours be enough time to get from the airport to Disney Springs? Is there a map of the route?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney's Magical Express is a fantastic way to start your vacation at Walt Disney World Resort.  You can relax on the bus and enjoy the ride to your Disney Resort hotel.  Unfortunately, at this time, they do not make stops at Disney Springs.

    I think it would be possible for you to do this, but only if you use car transport from MCO.  You can then go straight to your Disney Resort hotel, and from there to Disney Springs. I would highly recommend using the Disney Minnie Van Service for an efficient and magical start to your vacation!  Driven by knowledgeable and friendly Disney Cast Members, these vans can be ordered by using the Lyft app on your smartphone, where you can also see the cost of using this service, and make your payment.  These vans can accommodate up to 6 Guests (including 2 child seats if required). And they now operate a service between Walt Disney World Resort and Orlando International Airport. You can also order regular Lyft vehicles by using the same app.  

    When you arrive at your hotel, it may be a little early for your room to be ready, but if that is the case, you can store your luggage with Bell Services who will keep it in a secure, air-conditioned storage room until you return to check-in later in the day.  There is a regular bus service from Disney Springs to all the Disney Resort hotels.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
