    Can you take the magical express from the airport without registering ahead of time when you are staying at a Disney resort ?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lee! It's so exciting to hear you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in a few days! This is such a wonderful time of the year to visit, it'll be breathtaking from beginning to end, I'm sure!
    If you are staying at a qualifying Disney Resort Hotel while on vacation at Walt Disney World, you should be able to benefit from this service without a problem. If you booked directly with the Disney Reservation Center, a ride aboard Disney's Magical Express from Orlando International Airport must have already been booked. Most travel agencies also automatically book a spot for you and your party members and for that, they ask you to provide your flight numbers and time of arrival and departure. If you do not recall being asked this information, you can still call Disney's Magical Express, either to confirm a seat has been booked for you OR to book one as soon as possible. 
    In order to be able to use the service, you will need a voucher with your confirmation information and a barcode, which will be scanned by the Cast Members in order to allow you to board the motor coach. It is preferable to have made a reservation in advance so that the boarding process can be expedited. If it is a last minute trip you are going on and you realize that Disney's Magical Express has not been booked, you can always call -even upon arrival at Orlando International Airport- and reserve a seat aboard the motorcoach. The worst that can happen is that you will have to wait longer to get a seat but it is very unlikely that you will not find one.
    If you would like to get more detailed information, please call Disney's Magical Express at (866) 599-0951 and speak directly to a friendly Cast Member. 
    Lee, I hope this helps. Please come back with more questions as you finalize all the details of your trip. We'll be hEAR waiting for you!
    See ya real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
