    We are booking Disney for oct 2019 but flights aren't yet available. If we book the package without flights we may not be able to get flights that match our booking & may need a night elsewhere. Can we use Disney express the day before our booking

    Hi Melanie,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I often say that the magic of my Walt Disney World vacations begins the moment I first spot the signs for Disney's Magical Express. I love the convenience and comfort of getting to my Walt Disney World Resort Hotel riding in style on Disney's Magical Express.

    It's exciting to hear you're planning an October vacation at Walt Disney World as there is so much magic that time of year like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    In your situation, you would be arriving the day before your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel check-in and staying at a different accommodation. If you were staying the night before at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, Disney's Magical Express would get you there in style. I am guessing from your question, though, that you're asking about staying at an accommodation other than a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Typically, Disney's Magical Express transports you to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel on the day of your arrival and check-in.

    I can share that from my personal experience, Disney's Magical Express team has always been really helpful in assisting me with planning my reservations.

    My best suggestion, Melanie, is to give a call to Disney's Magical Express team at 1-866-599-0951 and talk through the options available to you.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
