    So if I catch the Magical Express from the Airport, will it take me directly to my resort? Also,if its not time to check in, is there a way to go straight to the parks and check in later? Just trying to get an idea how Day 1 is going to go.

    Hi Jerri, 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel for assistance planning your upcoming vacation! 

    Disney's Magical Express departs from Orlando International Airport and heads directly to the Walt Disney World Resort. The motor coaches are scheduled to stop at three or four resorts on any given trip (depending on how many guests are on board for each resort hotel). There is no guarantee on which one they will stop at first, so you may have a couple of quick stops on the way to your resort hotel. Generally speaking, you can plan to get there approximately 45 minutes to an hour after your departing the airport. If it is not officially check in time yet, you are welcome to store your bags with Bell Services upon arrival. You can take care of the check-in process though, so that everything is all set for when you get back to your resort. They will send you a text with your room number so you can head straight there at the end of the day. After checking in, you are then free to head to the theme park of your choice, using the complimentary onsite transportation. When you return to your resort, simply head on up to your room, give Bell Services a call, and they will bring your luggage to you.

    Wishing you magical memories,
