    How early should we catch the Disney Express Bus to go to the airport when going home?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tamara!

    Your Walt Disney World vacation is approaching quickly.  I am so excited to hEAR you will be arriving so soon!

    Leaving the most magical place on Earth can be the only downside of visiting the house of mouse.  Disney's Magical Express adds a final sprinkle of pixie dust to your trip.

    The evening before you depart your Walt Disney World resort hotel, a Transportation Notice will be delivered to your room which will provide a specified departure time for you to meet the Magical Express outside of your resort.  Resort pickup is typically between three and four hours prior to your flight's departure to allow enough time for travel to the airport including any time to pick up additional guests at other resorts.  Hang on to your Transportation Notice and have it ready when the Magical Express arrives as the driver will request this document from you.

    You may also consider using Disney's Minnie Van service if you prefer to schedule your departure at a specified time.  This transportation is available to provide a ride from your resort to the airport for an additional fee.

    Be sure to inquire about Disney's Resort Airline Check-In service.  This complimentary service allows guests flying with participating airlines to check in for your flight and check your luggage so you can head directly to the gate when you arrive at the airport.  If your flight leaves later in the afternoon or evening, this is a great way to get your luggage to the airport while you spend the day in the parks or resorts after you check out!

    Have fun making magical memories, Tamara!  Angie
