    Hi. We have a lunch reservation at a Disney hotel on the day of our arrival. We would like to go straight there, but it is not the hotel we are staying at. Can we take Magical Express to a different hotel than our hotel reservation? Thanks!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brittny!

    Disney's Magical Express provides complimentary motorcoach transportation between Orlando International Airport and the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel where you will be staying.  When checking in with Disney's Magical Express upon arrival at the airport, Cast Members will look up your reservation and your party will be assigned to the bus going to your specific resort hotel.  Although it wouldn't hurt to ask about the possibility of taking a different motorcoach, please know that in general, Disney's Magical Express is not set up to work that way.

    A good rule of thumb is to allow about 90 minutes from the time of arrival in Orlando to reach your Disney Resort Hotel.  The actual transit time may be shorter or longer depending upon how many Guests happen to be waiting when you arrive and how many stops are on the particular route; usually each motorcoach stops at 2 or 3 Resort Hotels.  I usually don't plan any dining or FastPass+ reservations for at least 3 hours after my scheduled arrival time just to be on the safe side.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.  Enjoy your stay!
