    We will arrive in Orlando at lunch time and want to get on the Magical Express immediately so we can get to Magic Kingdom asap. We plan on grabbing food to-go from the airport food court. Will we be permitted to eat on the Magical Express?

    Hi, Jennifer! We like to rush through the airport too so we can quickly get to our resort and the parks. After stepping off the plane, I take a short pause to roll up my manpris, we hit the bathroom and then we grab meals in a cup via Smoothie King.

    The tram from your terminal to the main airport hub does have signage indicating no food, drink or smoking while on board.

    You'll have time to eat/drink on your way to the Disney welcome center and while waiting in line for your Magical Express bus to arrive.

    By the time our Magical Express bus arrives, we're usually finished with our "food" (except for our 2 year old. Slowpoke.) We've brought a smoothie on board last trip and a sandwich on board the trip prior and nobody batted an eye. We tried not to flaunt it and were extra careful on keeping the bus clean (not the easiest thing to do with a 6 year old and 2 year old!)
