    Does the Magical Express run to and from the parks to the airport or only the resort hotels?

    Hi there, Lara! One of the perks of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is access to Disney's Magical Express Service. Just like Cinderella, you'll have a motor "coach" ready to whisk you away to a magical place! In addition to transporting you from the Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort, Disney's Magical Express also provides transportation for your luggage.  By using the yellow, barcoded luggage tags that are mailed to your home, Cast Members deliver your bags directly to your hotel room. How practically perfect is that?!

    I can certainly understand how anxious you'll be to start your vacation right away and head directly to the theme parks. However, Disney's Magical Express only drops off at the Walt Disney World Resort hotels. The actual drive from the airport to Walt Disney World Resort is about 30 minutes; however, I typically estimate 90 minutes from the time my flight lands to my arrival at my Resort. Here's a Moms Panel tip: Make sure not to pack your MagicBands in your checked luggage, as it can take 3-4 hours for your bags to be delivered.  Once you get to your Resort, ask Bell Services to take care of your carry-ons and hop on the next bus, monorail, boat, or Skyliner gondola to the Park of your choice! 

    See ya' real soon, Lara!
