    I'm flying into Sanford airport. Can I take a lyft ride to mco and take the magical express bus to my resort?

    Hey, Patti! Our daughters have a favorite ride at Walt Disney World Resort. Nope, it's not Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Slinky Dog Dash? Not that either! If you ask them, their favorite ride is actually on Disney's Magical Express because that means they are on their way to a magical adventure! Now, I can't say that the ride back to the airport is also their favorite. At that point, they call it the Tragical Express. Haha!

    All guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are entitled to a ride onboard Disney's Magical Express to and from Orlando International Airport on the day of their resort check-in and check-out. As long as you are heading right over to Orlando International Airport (MCO) and that it is indeed the same day that you check in at your Disney Resort Hotel, then you can definitely have this all set up for you. I do want to note to you that you will not be able to use the yellow luggage tags that will be mailed out to you, so be sure to throw those away and not affix them to your luggage. You will need to pick up your bags at the Sanford Airport and carry them with you to Orlando International Airport.

    I spoke with a fantastic Cast Member a while back who suggested the best way to set this up is to give them a call at (866) 599-0951. You can let the Cast Member know the time you plan to arrive at the airport and would like to board the motorcoach to your resort. They will reserve your family seats on one that will be running from the airport to your resort at the closest available time.

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to us and please let us know if you have any others as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
