    We will be arriving into Orlando at 8:30am & taking the ME bus. Does this bus drop off at any of the parks or must we go to the resort to check in first before heading to the parks? I thought I read somewhere that we can check in online ahead of arriv

    Hi Genny!

    Disney Magical Express buses only go to the resorts and not to any theme parks.  When you get to your resort hotel, you can check in.  If you're lucky, they may have a room ready for you.  Otherwise, you can leave your luggage with Bell Services and head off to the parks.  You can even leave contact information at the hotel so that you can be notified once your room is ready!

    You can do online check in for your resort hotel.  That does cut down on the amount of time it takes to check in at the resort.  Also, there's generally two lines:  one for guests who checked in online and one for those who didn't.  It's been my experience that the line for guests who checked in online is usually much smaller.  I really recommend doing online check in!

    Have a magical vacation!
