    can you take the magic express shuttle from the airport to a park rather than your resort? We are arriving early am and want to head to WDW right away, then later check into Coronada Springs

    Hi, Elizabeth! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You must be bubbling over with pixie-dusted excitement, your vacation is almost here! 

    Disney's Magical Express Bus Service is complementary transportation from/to Orlando International Airport for guests staying at a Walt Disney World® Resort Hotel. I can't think of a more magical way to start my vacation than to be able to relax and let Disney do the driving on one of these plush motor coach buses. However, this service only offers transportation from/to the airport and resorts, not to the theme parks. For more detailed information, select the highlighted link above.

    Here are a few other tips: 

    • You must have a reservation to board a Magical Express Bus at the airport. If you haven't added this service yet, you can do so by calling (407) 939-1936.

    • Have your MagicBand handy when you land at Orlando International Airport. When you arrive at the Magical Express check-in kiosk, Cast Members will need to scan your MagicBand to ensure you have a reservation and to direct you to the correct bus line. 

    • Each Magical Express Bus will make stops at multiple resorts, usually about four. Make sure you are aware of which stop is Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, so you don't miss it. 

    Once you arrive at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, head over to the Bell Services window to store your luggage. The theme parks offer lockers, but not luggage storage, you'll want your things stored safely at your resort. Once your luggage has been stored, head over to the Theme Park Transportation Bus Stop and off you go! 

    I hope this helps, Elizabeth! Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I am here to help you plan.
