    Hello! When flying in to Disney, is there a certain time the Magical Express stops transporting each day? I have seen a few flights that arrive to Orlando airport at 11pm.

    Hi Felecia, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    One of many great perks available to Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel is Disney's Magical Express which provides complimentary motorcoach transportation from Orlando International Airport. My own family has used Disney’s Magical Express many times. We find it a great, hassle-free way to kick off our Disney vacation.

    Felecia, I am happy to confirm that Disney's Magical Express operates 24 hours a day and will take guests to the Walt Disney World Resort whatever time their flight arrives at the Orlando International Airport. However, guests arriving on any flights between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. will first have to claim any checked luggage at the baggage carousel before then proceeding to the Magic Express check-in located in the Ground Transportation area of Side B, Level 1 of the airport terminal.

    If your flight is scheduled to arrive between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m., you will want to place the special Disney's Magical Express luggage tag on any checked baggage before checking it in with your airline. One tag for each guest in your party will be mailed to the lead guest on your Disney Resort hotel reservation shortly before your trip. This will then allow you to bypass the luggage carousel at the airport and proceed directly to the Magical Express check-in. In my opinion, this is what makes Disney's Magical Express truly MAGICAL!

    Felecia, I hope you enjoy arriving in true Disney style at your Disney Resort hotel using Disney's Magical Express. 

    Magically Yours,
