    How early does the Magic Express leave the resort to return you back to the airport?

    Hi Aimee,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this excellent question.

    Disney's Magical Express® is just one of the many pixie-dusted Benefits of Staying at a Disney Resort hotel. We absolutely LOVE it! Nothing says you are on vacation like riding the motor coach and going under the entrance sign at the place Where Dreams Come True.

    You will receive a Transportation Notice with the exact time of pick up the night before you check-out. The official site states the following about departure times: "To ensure that you do not miss your flight, motorcoach departure times are scheduled approximately 3 hours prior to your flight departure time for domestic flights, and 4 hours prior for international flights. Please note that it is your responsibility to bring your luggage to the departure point. Bell service luggage assistance is available upon request."

    We typically schedule our return flights for late evening. That way we can stay at our Disney Resort hotel until check-out time. We then leave our luggage with Bell Services before catching a bus bound for Disney Springs to go shopping. However, we make sure to note the time the motorcoach will be picking up at the resort and plan accordingly. That way we can enjoy our time at Disney Springs without a care in the world.

    I hope this was helpful information, Aimee. If you have any other vacation planning questions, please come back to visit us. My Disney Parks Moms Panel friends and I will be glad to spread a little pixie dust on all your Disney vacation plans.

    Wishing you an unforgettable visit to the place where The Magic is Endless!
