    We booked a flight seperate from the Disney experience. What will be the easiest and most cost effective way to get to the resort?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, Andrea!

    I have some magical news to share with you! Disney's Magical Express® is always available when staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. This is the case regardless of whether you booked flights separately from My Disney Experience or not. You need not have booked the hotel directly with Disney nor have a Disney Resort hotel package with a minimum length of stay either. So long as you are staying on-property at a Disney-owned-and-operated Resort hotel, you can take advantage of the complementary transportation offered by Disney's Magical Express®!

    I recommend calling Disney's Magical Express® to give them your flight number and airline information. You can contact Disney's Magical Express® at (407) 939-1936. Please remember to provide them with the flight information for your return trip home too.

    Make sure to pack your carry-on bags with the following items: at least one change of clothes, underwear, swimwear, pajamas, toothbrush, travel-size toothpaste, medications, valuables and anything you might need immediately upon arrival. That way, you can have some flexibility in case of any unforeseen delays. I also recommend packing your MagicBands in the carry-on, or even wearing them, so you won't be tempted to store them in the checked luggage.

    Alternatively, book a Minnie Van™ Service airport shuttle by calling (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529.

    If you are staying off-property at non-Disney-owned-and-operated accommodations, then I suggest hiring a taxi, or calling for a Lyft™ or Uber ride.

    Wishing you a most memorable visit to Walt Disney World Resort!
