    Can the Disney shuttle be used only for trip from Disney hotel back to the airport? or do you have to use it both ways

    Hi Tonya! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is a great question!!

    While Disney's Magical Express is available to and from Orlando International Airport to select Walt Disney World Resort hotels, Guests are not required to use the complimentary service both ways.

    On more than one occasion, I have used a different mode of transportation to get to Walt Disney World Resort but then enjoyed the convenience of Disney's Magical Express for my return trip to Orlando International Airport.

    If you are flying on a participating airline, you can take advantage of the Resort Airline Check-In service even if you are only using Disney's Magical Express to return to the airport. The day before your departure, a Transportation Notice will be delivered to your room with all of the pertinent information you need regarding time and location for your pick up. Be sure you keep the Transportation Notice in a safe place and have it with you when you depart. The motorcoach driver will collect it when you check-in for your departure back to Orlando International Airport. You will need to reserve Disney's Magical Express prior to your departure. If you have not already done so, you can make your reservation by calling (407) 939-1936. Have your flight information available when you call.

    I absolutely love Disney's Magical Express. Being able to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride both before and after my Walt Disney World Resort vacation is wonderful and appreciated!

    Thank you for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
