    Hi! If I have a 8am international flight out of MCO to YVR (Vancouver, Canada), will the magical express still take us to MCO? As it would likely have to be around 6am that we arrive at MCO!

    Hi Carla,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and hello to a fellow Canadian! I have great news for you: Disney’s Magical Express operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can count on riding that magical motorcoach from your Walt Disney World Resort hotel to Orlando International Airport, even when your flight is at “are my eyes really open?” o’clock.

    Here’s how it will work: the day before your departure, you’ll find a Disney’s Magical Express transportation notice hooked on the doorknob of your resort room. Inside the transportation notice will be all the details for where and when to catch the Magical Express. Pay careful attention to the departure time, because sometimes the pickup times are earlier than you would expect. The departure time is determined by Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World’s estimations of travel time, security line demands at MCO, and other considerations. Right now, that time is 4 hours in advance of your departure time for international flights, but that is subject to change. Don’t forget to bring the transportation notice with you, as the motorcoach driver will collect it when you board.

    Carla, another feature I love is resort airline check-in, which allows you to check in to your flight, receive your boarding pass, and check any baggage right from your resort. Note that this amenity is available only for participating airlines; you can check here to see if yours is on the list.

    Wishing you safe travels and a magical vacation!
