    I am arriving in Walt Disney World on May 13th; I have never flown into Disney. Does anyone know how this works? What do I do when we arrive in Florida and when we leave to go home? I am a little nerve about this; I have always driven to Disney. This will

    Hey Amanda, I am here to assist. I presume you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. If you are then you need to use Disney's Magical Express. Disney's Magical Express service is a simple easy way to get to your resort from the Orlando airport. This complimentary roundtrip airport transportation and luggage delivery for Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Using it you can start your vacation the moment you step off the plane. Bypass baggage claim and avoid the hassle of having to find transportation and drive, as Disney's Magical Express service transports you from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, and deliver your bags to your room. My family has used the Magical Express Service every time we go to the Happiest Place on Earth. It is the easiest way to get to your Resort without worrying about driving directions and your luggage can be delivered right to your room. The actual driving travel time from the airport to your Resort is 45 to 50 minutes depending on the traffic. When you you check in at Magical Express Welcome Center in the Main Terminal Building, B side, Level 1, you will be directed into lines according to grouped resorts to wait for the next Magical Express Bus that is traveling to your Resort. As for return trip to MCO, the Magical Express Bus will leave for the airport 3 hours before your plane is scheduled to depart. On the night before you leave you will receive an envelope on your door with all the details of your Magical Express pick up time for the next day. I hope this helps you have a magical trip.
