    Will the Magic Express bus pick up/drop off at the Orlando/Sanford airport also or just MCO?


    Disney's Magical Express only works from the Orlando International Airport (MCO). The same goes for the associated baggage movement program that picks up your bags and delivers them to your resort. But don't worry, I think I may have an alternate plan that you might want to consider!

    My favorite option when coming in to the Sanford airport is to rent a car, but just for the day. If you rent from National or Alamo, you can pick up the car at the airport and drop it off later that day at the Disney Car Care Center. This center is located near the toll plaza for the Magic Kingdom, so it is right there in the heart of Walt Disney World. They have complimentary shuttles throughout the day, so you can get to where you need to go after dropping off your car.  

    The real plus here is you could rent the car, swing by a grocery store to pick up any snacks or drinks or other necessities for your room on your way there. Drop everything off at the resort, and then return the rental at the Disney Car Care Center. If you decide to go this route, make sure you check out that page I connected you to, as shuttles do require that you let them know time and destination ahead of time.

    I know this costs money, as opposed to the free cost of Disney's Magical Express, but the cost of the rental may well be offset by the savings on your flight and the snacks and drinks in your room. I hope this helps you out!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
