    Our family all are TSA pre check at the airport and therefore going through security takes less time. Is there an option to let Magical Express know this for our departure time? Want to maximize time at Disney, minimize time at the airpot

    Hello Leanne!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Isn’t TSA Pre-check wonderful? We have it as well, and it certainly makes airline travel much easier.

    Your Disney’s Magical Express trip to Orlando International Airport on your check-out day is usually scheduled approximately 3 hours before your flight time. Currently, there is not an option to self-schedule or change your Magical Express departure time even if you have TSA PreCheck. I have found that by the time I arrive at Orlando International Airport, freshen up, make a visit to Disney's EarPort, or the Magic of Disney store for a few last minute must-haves, and grab a bite to eat, I’m not waiting around that long for my flight. On one occasion, with a late flight home, we were disappointed to find that they had closed the PreCheck lines! That night, I was certainly grateful for the extra few minutes of time before departure.

    Another option would be to book your own transportation to Orlando International Airport via taxi, Uber or Lyft. Additionally, Disney has recently introduced Minnie Van Service to Orlando International Airport, and you may schedule your pick up as late as 2 hours before your flight. You can book this service in advance by calling (407) WDW-PLAY.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions before your visit, Leanne, we are always happy to help!
