    Considering Magical Express. Coming from UK, check-in time 3 and half hours for return flight. Will ME get us there for that? Read elsewhere that ME drops off an hour before flight and that's not enough! Thanks

    Hi there Heather!

    Thanks so much for popping on by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question!
    Disney's Magical Express Service is fantastic and I so highly recommend it! My family flies in and out from Canada, and we use it every single time we visit for both our arrival and our return!

    The service takes into account your airline (domestic or international) and flight time and notifies you of your scheduled pick-up time the evening of the day before your departure. I've found that we're usually at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours prior to our 'International' flight. The 'hour before' timing you may have read somewhere must have been an American guest referring to a domestic flight drop off. I can assure you that we've never felt short on time for our flights.

    If you feel uncomfortable with the planned pick-up time Disney's Magical Express assigns to you, don't worry at all! It's very easily changed. Simply call them at the number on your letter which will be hung on your Resort Room Door and request an earlier pick up. Earlier shuttle times possible will be listed for you and you can select the timing that makes you most comfortable. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you and puts your mind at ease Heather!
    If you have additional questions about your upcoming visit, please feel free to write me back directly. I'd love to hear from you again and it would be my pleasure to assist you further in any way that I can!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
