    We are arriving at midnight and plan on staying at a hotel near MCO then stay at a Disney property for the rest of our trip. Question -as long as we are at MCO the next morning could we use the Magical Express ?

    Hi, Tony! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for bringing your question to us! My daughters love riding Disney's Magical Express motorcoaches to our Disney Resort Hotel. The videos shown during the ride are really cute and always build their excitement levels to infinity and beyond!

    No worries about waiting until the next day to catch that magical ride. All guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel are entitled to a ride on Disney's Magical Express on their check-in and check-out days. I spoke with one of their Cast Members recently, who suggested the best way to set this up is to give them a call at (866) 599-0951. You can let the Cast Member you speak with know the time you plan to be Orlando International Airport and your family will be reserved spots on one of the motorcoaches head to your Disney Resort Hotel at the closest available time.

    Once you arrive at your resort, note that your room may not be quite ready yet. If so, feel free to check your luggage with Bell Services and head off on an adventure! Since you plan to be there early, you may want to head off to one of the theme parks. Our favorite first-day activity is swimming at our resort's pool and participating in the fun pool-side activities. Be sure to give the Front Desk your contact information either when you arrive or when you complete Online Check-In and they will text or email you your room information as soon as it is ready.

    I hope this information helps you plan a magical arrival at Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
