    If our flight out is 6 am the morning AFTER we check out/spend the last day in park, can we still use Magic Express? Or would we need to extend our reservation 1 more night, to cover the gap between park closing and the 3am pick-up for 6am flight?

    Hello Keira! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I always try to squeeze out the most magic during of my final day of a trip at Walt Disney World Resort by taking advantage of Bell Services at my Resort Hotel and exploring the Theme Parks one last time.

    Utilizing Disney's Magical Express is a benefit to Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels on their Check-In and Check-Out dates. This means that you would have to book a trip to Orlando International Airport for the previous day or extend your Reservation for 1 more night if you plan to use Disney's Magical Express.

    If you choose the former, you could request a flight later in the day you Check-Our of your Resort Hotel, as long as your trip still falls on your official Check-Out date. This will get you to Orlando International Airport well in advance of your flight but still fall within the guidelines for Guests using Disney's Magical Express.

    If you choose to extend your vacation to cover the gap, you could schedule a Disney's Magical Express pickup for your 6am flight, which would be scheduled for around 3am.

    My family has had to schedule around very early flights during past vacations. It is sometimes an exhaustive hassle, but sometimes a necessary one.

    While waiting for your flight, be sure to peruse your Disney PhotoPass Photos on your My Disney Express account using any smart device to get you through the long wait before your flight. 

    Have a Magical Visit!
