    Can you take the magical express back to the airport even if you don't have a flight at the end of your magical experience? (we are catching a cruise so want to keep our luggage with us)

    Hi, Stefanie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for bringing your question to us! I just boarded Disney's Magical Express a couple of days ago for the journey back home and I have to say, that ride back to the airport is not as magical as the ride on our arrival day! It was like the realization that I had to start cooking dinner, cleaning the house, and going back to work was setting in. Well, at least you will not have to worry about it being that kind of ride to the airport, as you will be continuing your vacation!

    All guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are entitled to a ride on Disney's Magical Express from and to Orlando International Airport on the day of their resort check-in and check-out, whether they are actually using the airport services or not. I recently spoke with a fantastic Cast Member who suggested the best way to set this up is to give them a call at (866) 599-0951. You can let them know the time you would like to return to the airport and they can reserve your family spots on the motorcoach that will be running from your resort at the closest available time. You will then be free to continue on to the port to begin your cruise!

    On the day you check out of your Disney Resort Hotel, bring your luggage with you to the Disney's Magical Express pick up location. The motorcoach driver will assist you with stowing the bags underneath, leaving you to hop aboard and relax. Just be sure to pick them back up when you arrive at Orlando International Airport!

    Thanks again for stopping by to chat with us! Let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
