    We will be arriving a day early and staying at a airport hotel until the next day due to our flight coming in too late. Can Magic Express still take us to our resort even though we won't be getting right off the plane?

    Hi there, Maria!

    Thank you so much for sending in this excellent question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The super convenient complimentary service provided by Disney's Magical Express is just one of many benefits to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort property! My Mouseketeers are always about to burst with excitement when we board the motor coach to head over to the most magical place on earth! Like you, we often fly in on our magic carpet late at night so we can hit the ground running the following morning. We've also stayed at an airport hotel and had no problem utilizing the shuttle service even though we didn't fly in the same day. 

    My advice is to go ahead and reserve your transportation by calling Disney's Magical Express at (407) 939-1936. The Cast Member will be able to make a note on your reservation about your specific plans. Two to three weeks before you depart, you'll receive luggage tags and transportation instructions in the mail. You will not need your luggage tags, as you'll put your luggage under the motor coach. On the morning of the start of your Disney vacation, you'll want to head back over to the Orlando International Airport and have your shuttle drop you off on Side B, Level 1 Ground Transportation. You will need your MagicBands at this time for check-in. 

    Maria, when my family has stayed at an airport hotel for the first night, I've always made sure to pack everything we need for the night and the following morning in one suitcase so we aren't rummaging through three or four different bags. It really will make it super easy to get organized the next morning since Mickey will be waiting!

    Thank you again for allowing us to assist you with your plans! We hope you'll visit again if you have any additional questions.

    Have a magical day!
