    Hey there, my flight leaves at 6:26 in the morning. Will the Magical Express run that early?

    Hi there, Karmen! Greetings from everyone here at planDisney! We appreciate you taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your visit to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Disney’s Magical Express is the premier way of getting from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel! Guests staying with the Disney Resorts Collection will be whisked away via motorcoach after their arrival and can leave all of the inconvenience of ground transportation behind. Reservations are required to use Disney’s Magical Express and can be made by reaching out via phone. Though Disney’s Magical Express will no longer be offered for Guests arriving after January 1st, 2022, you can still take advantage of this service for the remainder of this year! 

    My family and I love taking early morning flights as it reduces the wait times in the airport and allows us to begin experiencing the magic of Walt Disney World Resort a bit sooner! I am happy to inform you that Disney’s Magical Express definitively runs this early in the morning and will be waiting for you as soon as you arrive! We have personally used this service a variety of times including for red-eye flights that arrived in the middle of the night. 

    If you plan on arriving at your Disney Resort hotel prior to the official check-in time, I highly recommend making a note of this during the Online Check-In process! Though it is not guaranteed, sometimes you will be given your room before the official check-in time whenever you let Cast Members know that you have arrived. 

    I also suggest keeping your MagicBands accessible before your arrival! This will let you check into Disney’s Magical Express as well as get into your room at your Disney Resort hotel. If you do not intend on using MagicBands, you can utilize the brand-new Disney MagicMobile option on your Apple devices! This convenient mobile service allows Guests to use all of the same options as the MagicBand right from their smart devices. All you will need to do is create your Disney MagicMobile pass through the My Disney Experience app and load it onto the digital wallet on your smart device. From there, just hold your device to an access point and start experiencing the magic! 

    I hope you have a magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to let us know if we can assist with planning any other portions of your stay!
