    Hi! We are arriving at 1140pm and wondering if we stay off Disney property near MCO that evening if the Magical Express will grab us from MCO the next day and take us to the Yacht Club where our reservations are? No rooms available the evening we get in.

    Greetings, Traci!

    We are so happy to hear from you here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for bringing your great transportation question to us. 

    I am thrilled to tell you I have a happily ever after answer to your question. Yes, you can stay near the airport on your arrival night and still take Disney's Magical Express the next morning, as long as it is the same day as your check-in for your Disney Resort Hotel. We have had a late arrival and stayed at the airport hotel under the same circumstances. The only downside is that you will have to retrieve your own baggage after your flight and take it to the motorcoach with you the next day. 

    Disney's Yacht Club Resort is one of our favorites. We stayed there this past December and were so impressed with the newly renovated rooms. My husband and I also had the opportunity to dine at the Crew's Cup Lounge and wow, their bread service with roasted garlic was divine. I highly recommend it!

    Have a magical trip, Traci, and please come see us again real soon with any other questions you may have. 

    Pixie Dust,
