Disney's Magical Express

    Christopher from AR Asked

    I will be flying into Orlando and staying at a DVC resort for a few nights prior to my cruise from Port Canaveral. Can I use Magical Express to return to MCO to catch the cruise line transportation to Port Canaveral?

    Welcome Home, Christopher!

    It’s always lovely to see someone come back to ask more questions to us here on planDisney, and I’m always excited to help a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member. So many of us are excited to return to traveling and especially cruising!

    Disney’s Magical Express will continue to service Guests through 2021. For the remainder of this year, every Disney Resort Collection Guest is entitled to a ride to Orlando International Airport (MCO) on the day of their check-out, regardless of their final destination. So yes, you may utilize Disney’s Magical Express to return to the airport so that you may use the Disney Cruise Line transportation to Port Canaveral.

    The way that Disney’s Magical Express works, you do need to put in a flight number. This is how they calculate what time to pick you up from the resort. You can add Disney’s Magical Express for your reservation from the Disney Vacation Club Member Website. I would search for and choose a flight number departing Orlando International Airport at approximately the same time as your bus to Port Canaveral that day. This will set you up to be picked up approximately 3 hours before departure, and leave added time for delays and emergencies, checking-in to the bus transportation, a restroom break, and a meal or snack before boarding the bus.

    From there, you should hopefully have smooth sailing to Port Canaveral!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
