    i am flying from the UK, i have magical express included when i booked..... do i need to do anything before i arrive? i don't have a clue how magical express works 

    Hi Soraya,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing us your question about Disney's Magical Express, one of my favorite benefits for Disney hotel guests! 
    As an international traveler myself, I know the logistics might be a little bit harder when traveling from outside of the United States. If you would like to confirm you have a spot aboard Disney's Magical Express, you may call  0800 16 90 730. All you need to provide is your confirmation number and they will either verify you have a seat or will proceed to add if it wasn't yet. 

    Upon arrival at Orlando International Airport, as you exit the Customs area you may keep your checked bags with you to travel on the motorcoach, or use the complimentary luggage delivery service—available for flights landing between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM. I prefer the former, simply because knowing that my bags are with me gives me peace of mind. If I need to grab anything from them, I do not have to wait for them to be delivered. 
    Disney's Magical Express is located in Terminal B, Level 1. Guests arriving in Terminal A of the airport are advised to cross to Terminal B before proceeding down to Level 1. Once there, simply follow the Disney's Magical Express signs and when you make it to the podium, you will be greeted by a friendly cast member who will ask you to provide your confirmation number and/or your last name. They will print a voucher with a barcode on it and will tell you which line to get into (depending on what resort you will be staying at). Get in line and walk up to the entrance. Be sure to roll your bags and suitcases with you over to where the motorcoach is. A friendly Cast Member will scan your voucher and you will be able to board the motorcoach. Your driver will place your bags and suitcases in the bottom compartment of the vehicle. Your Magical Adventure is about to begin! Sit back, relax for about 30 minutes and enjoy the view or videos shown on the screens.

    At check-in, be sure to mention the Cast Member assisting you whether you will need (or not need) to use this complimentary service back to the Orlando International Airport. If you will, provide them with your flight information. You will receive a Disney's Magical Express notice (a voucher inside an envelope) the day before your departure telling you what time you will be picked up by the motorcoach. 

    Soraya, I hope this information is useful in your planning. I hope to see you again with more questions; we are hEAR to help you plan your trip!

    See ya real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
