    I’m from Finland and I wonder how you can book seats at the Magical Express bus? We’re not using a travel agent.

    Hi Sofia,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing us your question about one of my favorite benefits that Disney hotel guests receive, complimentary transportation between Orlando International Airport and your resort hotel aboard Disney's Magical Express

    As an international traveler myself, I know the logistics might be a bit complicated when traveling from outside of the United States. However, reserving a spot for you and your family on Disney's Magical Express is super simple. The easiest way to do it is by calling the Disney Reservation Center, (407) 939-1936 (*charges may apply for calls made outside of the United States). The Cast Member assisting you on the phone should be able to add the motorcoach service to your reservation (be sure to have your confirmation number handy). 
    Upon arrival at Orlando International Airport, as you exit the Customs area, keep your checked bags with you to travel on the motorcoach. Keep in mind that 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, follow 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 (which depends on what resort you will be staying at). Get in line and await further directions. Once you know what stop you need to go to, be sure to roll your bags and suitcases with you over to where the motorcoach is. Your driver will take care of your bags, will scan your barcode and ask you to board the motorcoach.

    Your Magical Adventure starts aboard Disney's Magical Express! Sit back, relax for about 30 minutes and enjoy the view or videos shown on the screens. At check-in, be sure to mention whether you will need or not need to use this complimentary service back to Orlando International Airport so you can secure a seat that day. You will need to provide your date, time of departure and flight number. 

    I hope this information is useful, Sofia. Please come back with more questions; we love to help you plan your trip!

    Wishing you the best vacation ever,

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.
