    We're flying into Tampa a few days before our WDW vacation, then renting a car to drive to Orlando. The car rental company insists that we drop the car off at MCO. If we do that can we still take the Magical Express from the airport to our resort (CBR)?

    Hi Robert!

    My family have enjoyed flying into Tampa and Orlando International Airports during our last Walt Disney World vacations.  Tampa airport is very nice and easily manageable, while Orlando airport is a hop, skip and jump away from the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Magical Express is a wonderful service offered solely to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  Although it is always recommended that you pre-schedule your ME transfer, it is not required to take advantage of this perk.  Seeing as you have a WDW resort reservation, you are able to use ME on the day you are scheduled to check in.  Once you've entered Orlando International, you will need to pick up your luggage, as ME cannot provide you with tags without confirmed flights.  You can head to the Magical Express counter, on the B side of the airport, and provide them with your resort confirmation number.  They will print out a voucher for you and your party, and direct you to the appropriate resort bus, and you'll be on your way.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
