    Hi Brigitta, our flight leaves MCO on Sept. 25th @ 1:45 p.m. What time should we expect to leave Poly. via Magical Express? Not sure if it is 3 or 4 hours prior to flight. Thank you very much for the info!!!

    Hi Lynn,

    You must be so excited for your upcoming trip to WDW!  I have taken Disney's Magical Express many times and I hate the dreaded return trip home and leaving all that magic behind, but I know it has to end at some point :(  (or at least until the next visit).

    To answer your question, you will be picked up from your participating Disney Resort (The Polynesian Resort) approximately 4 hours prior to your direct flight to Canada (international).  If you were flying within the US, your pick-up time would have been approximately 3 hours prior to your flight.  I have been picked up many times 3 hours prior to my flight back to Canada but that was because it was not a direct flight home, but rather a flight with a stopover/plane change in a US destination before arriving in Canada.  As your vacation draws to a close, you'll receive a Transportation Notice advising you of the pick-up time and place for your motor coach ride back to Orlando International Airport. Please note that it is your responsibility to bring your luggage to the pick-up point.  They have always been very punctual every time they have picked us up, just so you make sure you don't miss the coach, I always get there a few minutes earlier than the scheduled pick-up time. Enjoy your magical vacation!

    Best wishes,
