    We arrive at MCO at 3pm. We have Express tags and understand our luggage will be taken to our room. Rather than going to our resort, we want to go directly to eat at Animal Kingdom lodge. Is that OK, and do we just choose the bus we want to get on?

    Hi Ethan!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney's Magical Express is such a great way to start a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because it's so nice to not have to worry about anything at the start of your trip! All Guests using Disney's Magical Express must take the bus from Orlando International Airport to their "home" Disney Resort hotel. Unfortunately, you cannot choose to take a different bus at the start of your trip. So you will need to plan to take your Disney's Magical Express bus to your "home" hotel and then take a complimentary resort transportation bus, a cab or a Minnie Van to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to lunch.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
