    What is the drop off order for Magical Express, namely looking to identify the Cabins at Ft. Wilderness. Also can you go straight to a park instead of checking in?

    Hi Ryan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your stay at The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort is just days away and with Christmas decorations up at most Disney Resort hotels at this point, your visit will be even more magical!

    The drop-off sequence for Disney's Magical Express varies depending on time of day, time of year, and Guests that have arrived at the time that the bus is ready. Around this same time last year, I took Disney's Magical Express and the order was Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, then Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. A few weeks ago, it was the same, but without the stop at Disney's Contemporary Resort. And a few weeks before that, my bus only went to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa! Since it changes, I suggest asking the Cast Members at the check-in podium to see if they know the order your bus will take.

    Disney's Magical Express does not transport Guests to any of the theme parks. It only provides transportation for Guests to their specific Disney Resort hotel. Once you arrive at The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort you can head straight to the Walt Disney World complimentary bus transportation to hop on a bus to the theme parks instead of checking in for your stay, or you can check-in and then head out to the theme parks. You will be exploring all the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer in no time!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Ryan! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
