    We will be arriving by rental car in April, but using Disney's magical express to the airport upon our departure. We have a 9:15 flight out of Orlando. Does anyone know how early the magical express leaves prior to a flight's departure?

    Hello Crystal,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for your great question!  Disney's Magical Express is such a wonderful service.  It's hard to beat complimentary transportation between Orlando International Airport and your Disney Resort hotel!  

    The day before your check-out, you'll receive a Transportation Notice delivered to your room.  The complete details on when and where to pick up the Magical Express motorcoach will be listed on that notice.  Generally, the departure time is about 3 hours before your scheduled flight (or 4 hours for international flights).  The Transportation Notice also serves as your ticket to board the motorcoach, so be sure to have that with you when you're ready to leave.  You'll also want to be sure Magical Express has your flight information in advance by calling (407) 939-1936 with those details.

    Wishing you a most magical vacation, Crystal!  Please write back if we can help you with any other details as you make your pixie-dusted plans.
