    Hello. We are having christmas 2019 at Disney! We have 2 families going.. If one family stays on site and the other at one of the 7 springs resorts can we travel together to the parks and with the magic express from the airport or will we have to meet up?

    Hey there, Tiffani! Christmas is my absolute most favorite time to visit Walt Disney World. I love going with family to enjoy the holiday decorations and festivities.

    Disney's Magical Express transports Walt Disney World resort guests from the Orlando International Airport to their Walt Disney World resort, and then at the end of their stay, back from their resort. You do have to be staying at a Walt Disney World resort to use the transportation, and to make the process easier, they can scan your resort MagicBand to get you headed in the right direction. Guests not staying at a Walt Disney World resort would have to make alternative transportation arrangements.

    As far as Walt Disney World theme park and resort transportation, anyone with a theme park ticket or a dining reservation is welcome to use the transportation. If, for example, you are at the theme park and want to head back to a resort for a meal, all of you can travel together. You can also all travel together between theme parks or between Disney Springs and other resort areas. The only thing those staying off site would not be able to do is leave a vehicle for a full day at the resort. Guests not staying at a resort can park for up to three hours to do some shopping or have a meal.

    I hope your families are sprinkled with Christmas magic on your upcoming vacation!
