    I booked the magical express but decided to fly in a day early. Can I take the magical express on 1/1 then return to my resort to check in on 1/2?

    Hi John! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I love Disney's Magical Express! I feel like the moment I get on the bus is when my vacation really begins. Not to mention that the video that plays during the journey gets my kiddos EXTRA excited!

    Disney's Magical Express is reserved for Guests arriving at Orlando International Airport on their check-in day since the hotel reservation is needed to reserve this transportation and you can only be dropped off at the Disney Resort hotel that you are staying at (they do not transport to the theme parks or Disney Springs). Your best bet will be to give Disney's Magical Express a call at (407) 939-1936 to see what options you have for transportation, but most likely you will need to use another form of transportation like a ride-sharing service, rental car, taxi cab, or local bus. Perhaps your hotel for the first night of your stay has a shuttle service ... it would be a good idea to check with them!

    I hope this helps and you have the BEST vacation, John! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
