    Love the Panel!!! Have three questions. 1. HOw do you book a ride on ME. 2. Can you get disney world gift cards other then online. Last which do you think is better Corondo springs of Wilderness Lodge.

    Hi Jake,

    Disney Magical Express can be booked at the time of your Disney reservation, or you can call 866-599-0951 and provide your resort confirmation number and flight information to book your ride.

    Disney gift cards can be purchased in advance of your trip either online at or they are sold at any DIsney store you may have in your area. Once on property, the gift cards are sold at almost all merchandise locations.

    As for resorts, both Coronado Springs and WIlderness Lodge are two great properties. Wilderness Lodge is a deluxe property and Coronado a moderate however Coronado is a convention center property so it offers a number of additional amenities that other moderates do not. Personally we prefer the setting of the Northern Woods over the Spanish American feel at Coronado. We love the towering lobby and fireplace at Wilderness and the biggest draw for us is the proximity of the Wilderness Lodge to the Magic Kingdom. We love the ability to take the boat over to other Magic Kingdom resorts and the park. The other thing to consider is with Coronado SPrings a convention property, you may find additional guests at the property for meetings which could increase crowds and noise factor.

    Hope this helps!
