    If I fly on a non participating airline, can I still use Magical Express?


    Thanks for your question!

    Disney's Magical Express is available for use to any Disney Resort Hotel guest flying in to the Orlando International Airport (MCO). It does not matter what airline you fly!

    The list of participating airlines you likely viewed is related to the Resort Airline Check-In program. That would impact you on your departure day. If you were with one of those airlines you could get your boarding pass for your return flight, as well as have your bags checked in to your flight right there at the resort. You would not have to deal with them until you arrived at your home airport.

    But don't worry. If you are not with one of those airlines, simply drop your bags off at your resort's Bell Services desk in the morning. When you return to take the Magical Express bus back to the airport, simply gather your bags and take them on the bus with you. The bus driver can place them in the storage compartment for that journey. You will still need to gather them when you arrive at the airport, and then check them in at the airline counter as as you would normally on any other trip. 

    I hope that this helps? Write me back if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
