    I will be attending a conference at the Swan and my daughter will fly to MCO on her own to meet me. Does Disney provide a service to help unaccompanied minors to get from the gate to Magical Express?

    Hello Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am thrilled you stopped by to ask a vacation planning question.

    The Walt Disney World Swan and Walt Disney World Dolphin hotels are both beautiful Resorts.   They are even located perfectly between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.   I think you are going to really enjoy your stay during your conference.   I hope you are able to enjoy some yummy restaurants on Disney's BoardWalk, such as Flying Fish and Trattoria al Forno.   Not only is the food fantastic, but both dining locations are within walking distance of your Resort.  

    Melissa, unfortunately Disney's Magical Express does not provide service to Guests staying at either the Walt Disney World Swan,  or Walt Disney World Dolphin hotels.  Most Guests who fly in will rent a car, use a ride share or private shuttle.   Being a former airline employee, I know that someone must be at the airport as well to sign and show ID in order to pick up an unaccompanied minor.   You or another adult would need to go to the airport and pick up your daughter.   I suggest you look into renting a car, even if just for a day as it may be your cheapest option.

    I hope this has helped.  Please stop by again in the future.  We are always ready to assist fellow Guests.
