    We're arriving to MCO in two groups for our reservation (a family reunion of sorts) all in a villa at Animal Kingdom Lodge! - can't wait! But - how do we reserve Magic Express with two different arrival times?

    Hi Andrew!

    Your vacation sounds practically perfect in every way!!! 

    Your family reunion will get kicked off in a most magical way on Disney's Magical Express! Booking separate reservations for each group will not be a problem at all. Simply call Disney's Magical Express at (407) 939-1936. When you speak with the Cast Member, have your Resort hotel reservation number as well as the flight information for both sets of flights. The Cast Member will make separate reservations for each group on Disney's Magical Express and you will be set.

    When it's time to head back home, if you are departing at different times, you will receive two different Disney’s Magical Express transportation notices. Make sure each group keeps their transportation notice with them as it will be needed to get on the motorcoach.

    I am so excited for you! We had a similar vacation a few years ago. We shared in a mini family reunion and it was so magical! We all stayed together in a Grand Villa and it was absolutely amazing! Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are my daughter's favorite Resort hotels! It's a vacation within a vacation! She loves looking at and learning about all of the animals. My son loves the pools, and my husband and I love the dining options. It's such a beautiful Resort hotel. My mom and dad arrived at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village before the rest of us did. Our villa wasn't quite ready so they found a couple of chairs overlooking the savanna and had a perfectly wonderful time. It was a perfect start to their vacation!

    I wish you and your family a vacation filled with magical memories!
