    Diane from IL Asked

    Hi, flying to FL and staying at AOA this Oct; on check out day, we plan to rent from Alamo and drive to stay 1 night Clearwater. Is it ok to still come back to Disney Car rental service to drop off the rental car and use the ME bus back to the airport?

    Heigh-Ho Diane

    Walt Disney World and Clearwater are two of my favorite places in Florida and both are in drive-able proximities of each other with two major airports, which makes it even more convenient. 

    Disney’s Magical Express will continue to transports Guests, with new and existing reservations, through 2021 and make its final trip to retirement beginning 2022. Guests using Disney’s Magical Express can arrange transport by calling (407)939-1936. Guests must have a Disney Resort Reservation and will ONLY be dropped off, on the day of their arrival and picked up, on the day their reservations ends, from the Resort you have ended your stay. So, unfortunately, you could not use Disney’s Magical Express a day later to be transported back to the Orlando International Airport. 

     However, do not let that deter you, you actually have a couple of options. First, if you are visiting Clearwater, consider flying home from the Tampa International Airport and stay a couple more days. You can arrange to make Tampa your rental car drop-off location. Or make Orlando International Airport your drop-off location, for your rental car, and continue with your current flight reservations. It is not necessary to bring your rental car all the way back to Walt Disney World’s Car Care Center.

    I hope this helps and feel free to ask us any further curiouser and curiouser inquiries you may have. Stay up to date by following the Disney Parks Blog and check our Instagram (@plandisneypanel) for more Disney Magic.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,
