    Our departure flight is at 8:30 am. I've seen that the magical express picks up about 3 hrs before, so that would be 5:30 am. Does it run that early or will we need to find another transportation method to the airport?

    Hi Leighann - I can tell you from experience that the Magical Express does run that early.  The day before you leave, the Magical Express should leave you some paperwork with information as well as your pick-up time. 

    One caveat however -- Airline check-in opens at 5:00 a.m., so make sure you are in line with plenty of time to check your bags, show your IDs, and receive your boarding passes.  Our Magical Express left at 5:20 a.m. last time, and although we got in line at 5:00 a.m. it was a very close call.  Your alternative is to check-in at the airport, and bring your luggage on the Magical Express with you.  Many families choose that option. 

    Have a great vacation!
