    I know you folks pick people up at the airport but do you also pick people up at the train station

    Hi there Debi! Allow me to welcome you all aboard planDisney. Thanks for stopping by en route to the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Disney's Magical Express® is a wonderful service included in your stay in the Disney Resorts Collection. I love the convenience of being whisked away to my resort hotel upon arrival. I truly settle into vacation mode when I sit back and let Disney do the driving. At this time these motor coaches are only available to Guests traveling through Orlando International Airport, and since you will be arriving by rail, let's talk about alternative routes that will get you to your destination.

    My parents are part-time Florida residents and occasionally take the Amtrak Auto Train when they journey down south. The endpoint of this route is Sanford, Florida, a charming town just under an hour's drive from Walt Disney World. The Amtrak Silver Service/Palmetto Line stops in both Orlando and Kissimmee (the latter being the closest station to Walt Disney World). All aforementioned Amtrak stations have a Hertz rental car counter on site where you could pick up a vehicle and drive to your resort hotel, but taxi and ride share services are also available at all locations. 

    I hope this helps you to start making plans to complete your adventure to the Walt Disney World Resort. Traveling by train is such a wonderful and relaxing way to go. Did you know that Walt Disney himself was a train enthusiast? He built his very first railroad in his backyard, the Carolwood Pacific Railroad. It was a 1/8-scale steam-powered locomotive that encircled his property. Although it's currently not circling the Magic Kingdom Park, when it is operational, I love to take a ride on the Walt Disney World Railroad and think about the man who started it all. Thanks again for stopping by, Debi, and we'll see ya real soon!

    Bon voyage!
