    We are arriving at Orlando on separate planes. My 23 year old has an obstacle race that morning so she is running and taking a later plane. She will fly into Orlando alone at midnight. Will she be able to take the Magical Express to our resort?

    Hi Chris!

    As a huge fan of Disney's Magical Express Service, I am glad that you will be using the complimentary free shuttle service from Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort hotels. It's your first bit of pixie dust on your fun filled vacation!

    Magical Express is able to accommodate guests who have an active Disney reservation and are traveling on separate airlines and/or varying times.  As your daughter will be traveling the same day of the reservation, she will be entitled to use Magical Express.  My suggestion is to pre register your flight information by calling Magical Express at (407) 939-6244..  You can alert them that she will be arriving on a later flight, and they will be able to input all her information in their system to provide a seamless transfer.  Keep in mind that DME's typical hours are from 5:00 am to 11:00 pm, but they will extend hours if you have DME booked!  Also, if arriving at MCO after 10:00 pm, she will need to collect her own luggage and bring it to the DME desk on the B side of Orlando International Airport.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
