    My husband and I are bringing our daughter for her 2nd birthday. We are flying in after work and wont land until extremely late ... 11:58pm. Can we still use the Minnie Vans at that time? Or do you have other options for transportation?

    Hi Ashley,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is getting closer every day! Unfortunately, Disney's Minnie Van Airport Service only runs between 6:00 A.M. and 11:59 P.M. With your flight arriving at 11:58 P.M. and figuring in time to pick up your luggage there is simply no way for Disney's Minnie Van Airport Service to work for your arrival. 

    However, I do have good news! If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel then you can use Disney's Magical Express for complimentary transportation from Orlando International Airport to your Resort Hotel. Disney's Magical Express runs twenty-four hours a day. Since you are arriving after 10 P.M. you will need to pick up your checked luggage at Baggage Claim before making your way to the lower level on the B side of the airport. There you will check-in with Disney's Magical Express and board the motorcoach. 

    If you prefer not to use Disney's Magical Express, you could use a rideshare, taxi, or car service. My family and I prefer to use Disney's Magical Express for our airport transportation but we have used a rideshare service on occasion. 

    If your departing flight is between 6 A.M. and 11:59 P.M. you can use Disney's Minnie Van Airport Service at the end of your visit. Disney's Magical Express will also take you back to Orlando International Airport for your trip home. If you are flying with a participating airline, you can use Resort Airline Check-In to check your luggage before you leave the resort! 

    Ashley, thank you for visiting us with your question! I hope you will let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions before your visit. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
