    Hello! We are considering flying instead of driving to WDW next February. Are there set times the Magical Express Bus runs from the airport to hotels? We are staying at the Contemporary. Just trying to minimize long wait times. Thanks so much!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Darcy! Thank you for visiting us with your great question about Disney's Magical Express Service
    As an international traveler myself, I use Disney's complimentary motor coach service quite a lot and I couldn't love it more!
    Disney's Magical Express runs 24/7. We have never had to wait in line more than 10 minutes. The process is quite simple, you pick up your suitcases and roll them over to the podium, or if you attached the yellow tags you received in the mail from Disney, you just for them to magically appear at your Disney World Resort hotel
    Once at the podium, be sure to provide the Cast Member, your reservation number and/or your full name so they can locate you on their system. The Cast Member will print out a voucher with a barcode for the next Cast Member to scan and allow you to board the motor coach. You will be told what line to follow based on your resort, and once there, a Cast Member will scan the barcode on your voucher and will tell you what stop to wait at. When you get there (it's usually a couple steps away), your driver will greet you and will take your voucher. They will place your luggage in the lower compartment of the motor coach. You will then be allowed to board and will be invited to relax as your magical adventure begins! 
    The ride is usually about 30 minutes long and it is full of Disney trivia and useful information about your trip provided on the TVs. 
    If you have any questions regarding Disney's Magical Express, do not hesitate to contact them by calling +1 866-599-0951. 
    I hope this helps, Darcy. Please keep visiting us as you continue to plan your vacation! I wish you a fabulous trip to the  Walt Disney World Resort!
    See ya real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
