    How do I book the Magic Express from MCO to / from Walt Disney World Resort if I am coming from outside the US? My airline (Emirates) does not appear on the list provided during the booking process and I am unable to call the help hotline from overseas.

    Hi Julian,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question, my fellow international traveller!

    If I understand correctly, you’re travelling to Orlando International Airport via an airline that, surprisingly, isn’t listed among the choices in your drop-down menu when you tried to register for Disney’s Magical Express service online. 

    You still have several options to be able to use this excellent service and have your bags “automagically” whisked from the airport to your Disney Resort Hotel. First, I encourage you to keep trying to register your reservation directly online in the “My Plans” section of your My Disney Experience account. Because, from what I understand, Emirates Airlines does operate several non-stop flights to Orlando International Airport each week, I’m surprised it’s not available in the list. 

    If your airline doesn’t pop up, don’t worry! Once you arrive in Orlando and clear United States Customs, simply take your luggage with you down to the Disney’s Magical Express counter at Level 1. There, you’ll be able to give them your Resort confirmation number for your stay, and they’ll get you on the next bus to your Disney Resort Hotel. You’ll likely have to take your luggage on the bus with you, but you’ll be able to ask Bell Services to store it for you, if your room isn’t ready, once you arrive at your Resort. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan a smooth arrival in Central Florida. Should you have any additional planning questions, please don’t hesitate to come back and see us. We’re always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
