    My daughter is 12. I’ve seen the age to enter parks alone is 14 and the age to ride the Magical Express alone is 12. If one parent is at the resort and one at a park, can she ride the park bus alone and meet us at the gate?

    Hi, Kelsie! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    You are absolutely correct; following the policies of most airlines, the minimum age to ride alone on Disney's Magical Express is now 12. And according to the Walt Disney World Property Rules, Mouseketeers under age 14 must be accompanied by a Guest age 14 or older to enter the theme parks. That being said, I could not find anything regarding minimum age requirements for Walt Disney World Resort's complimentary Bus Transportation. I spoke to a Cast Member to confirm this, and she said that since a parent is planning to meet her at the theme park gate, your daughter should be fine to ride the bus alone.  

    Speaking of transportation, keep a lookout for the "Sensational Six" theme park buses which have recently received a magical makeover, with USB charging ports conveniently located between seats. By the time of your trip, you'll also have an incredible new way to get around Walt Disney World Resort! The Disney Skyliner aerial gondolas are set to begin operation on September 29, 2019, serving four Walt Disney World Resort hotels and two theme parks. This will be a way to add a little pixie dust to your day!

    See ya' real soon!
