    Is there a way to find out which resorts share the same bus for the magical express? I am traveling with a large group and we are split between 4 hotels, would just like to plan out the suitcase situation with who brings what ahead of time. Thank you!

    Hi Brittney:

    Great idea to plan this aspect of your vacation in advance.

    To be efficient, Disney Magical Express buses can change routes quickly and without warning, depending on Guest needs, so I am unable to guarantee how buses will be grouped when you arrive.  To give you some idea how they may be grouped, I generally find that Resorts that are close to each other tend to share buses.  So you may see Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary, Wilderness Lodge, and Fort Wilderness share one or two bus routes; you may see Yacht and Beach Club, Boardwalk Caribbean Beach and Pop Century share one or two bus routes; you may see Animal Kingdom Lodge, All-Star Resorts, and Coronado Springs Resort share one or two bus routes, and you may see Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside, Old Key West, and Saratoga Springs share one or two bus routes.

    Again, the above should give you a general idea of Resorts that tend to get grouped together, but are not guaranteed.  So remember to pack appropriately. 

    Enjoy your vacation.
