    Hello- My flight lands at MCO at 12:25pm. Does the Magical Express go from MCO to Disney Springs? We have lunch reservations at 2pm. Or do we need to go to our resort (PO French Quarter) and then ferry over to Disney Springs? Do we have time to make it?

    Hello Francesca! So glad that you chose to come visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I see that you are planning on using Disney's Magical Express! For me, this complimentary transportation at Florida International (MCO) Airport, always signals the beginning of a great visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Currently, Disney's Magical Express serves to transfer Guests from the airport to their Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. It does not make stops at Disney Springs. However, once you are at your Disney Resort Hotel there is complimentary transportation to Disney Springs through Disney Transportation. From Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter you can travel to Disney Springs via bus or boat!

    Francesca, just like you, I try to maximize our time when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort! There is so much to do (and eat)! However, I don't recommend a 2:00 lunch reservation if your flight is scheduled to land at 12:25. Keep in mind travel time from the airport to your resort. You also have to consider that Disney's Magical Express usually makes stops at several resorts after leaving the airport. Perhaps consider making that late lunch reservation into a dinner reservation and leave yourself time so that you don't get stressed upon arrival to your vacation!
