    We are flying in to Orlando and using Disneys service for picking us up at the airport. I am a little confused on how this process works. How will we know when and where to be to get picked up after we arrive? Thanks for you help.

    Hi Mary!

        I love using Disney's Magical Express and I have used it over 15 times since 2007!  Disney's Magical Express is a complementary transportation service which transports you from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Walt Disney World Resorts and when your vacation is done, Magical Express will transport you back to the Orlando International Airport for your flight home. You should receive Magical Express vouchers and luggage tags in the mail about 1 to 2 weeks before your Walt Disney World vacation is scheduled to begin.  When you land at the Orlando International Airport take the shuttle from your arrival gate to the main terminal. You will be on Level 3 of the main terminal. You will need to take the elevators or escalators down to the Disney’s Magical Express Welcome Center which is located on Side B, Level 1, Ground Transportation.  There will be lots of signs directing you to the Magical Express Welcome Center.  Then you will show your Magical Express voucher and you will be directed into a line for your a bus that is going to your Walt Disney World Resort.  A short ride on the Magical Express Bus and you will be at your Resort and ready to start your vacation!

    For your return flight home from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) you will be given a scheduled pick up time at your Resort that is typically 3 hours before the time of your departure flight at MCO. Normally, you will receive an envelope from Magical Express on your Resort Room door the day before you leave Walt Disney World. In this envelope, there will be your Magical Express instructions and a your scheduled Magical Express pick up time at your Resort.

    I hope that you have a magical time on your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
