    I've driven to Disney World in the past but am now considering flying due to the fact that it will just be me and my daughter. My question is are there any major differences between flying and being transported to the resort versus driving to the resort.

    Hi Melanie!

    Disney makes it as easy as possible to fly to Walt Disney World! In fact, I often fly alone or with just the kids - without any worries at all.

    First, you'll want to call Disney and arrange for Magical Express. This is the bus service that will transport you to your resort from Orlando International Airport. A few weeks before your trip you'll receive your travel voucher booklet and luggage tags in the mail.

    The luggage tags can be used to have Disney representatives claim your luggage at the airport and deliver it right to your hotel room. You simply put the tags on at home, check your bags at the airport and then see it again in your room! If you prefer to claim your own luggage, you can do that too. Simply claim it as normal and then head over to the Magical Express buses.

    The only things to keep in mind are that the trip from the airport to your resort via the buses can take a couple of hours. Your luggage will appear in a few hours as well (if you've used the baggage service).

    I wouldn't hesitate to fly and use Magical Express, honestly. I think it is an awesome service!
