    Magical Express vs private transportation (Uber)? Which do you prefer? Pros and cons. Also, we have an 18 mo old and teens. Would you use Kids Night Out babysitting service?

    Hi Julieann! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip is SO close now! As the countdown to your magical vacation nears the end, thinking about all of the details for transportation and date night is a wise choice.

    I absolutely love traveling on Disney's Magical Express! I feel like my vacation begins as soon as I board the bus. Obviously, the biggest pro is that it is complimentary. There is a video that plays during the ride to keep everyone entertained and you don't have to worry about a car seat for your 18-month-old when riding the bus. My favorite thing about using Disney's Magical Express is luggage delivery. It is SO nice to check our luggage at our departure airport and not have to think about it again until it auto-magically shows up in our Disney Resort hotel room. With another transportation option like a ride-sharing service, you will need to make sure to budget for the ride, either bring your own car seat or try to request one with the service, and you will need to claim your own luggage at baggage claim and take it with you to your Disney Resort hotel. The one pro to private transportation is that it is usually a faster arrival to your hotel since you don't have to wait in line for your bus to arrive or make any other stops at different Disney Resort hotels along the way.

    Kid's Night Out is a Disney preferred provider for childcare services and is a great option for getting a night out for you! The price per hour only increases slightly for multiple kiddos, which is nice. My husband and I were just discussing our babysitting needs for date night on our next family trip and we plan to give Kid's Night Out a call!

    Enjoy your vacation, Julieann! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
