    Do i need a magic express reservation? Or can i fly in last minute and show up at the magic express with my resort reservation number?

    Hi Nancy!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    I'm so happy you checked in with us to see if you need a reservation in order to use Disney's Magical Express. Through the end of 2021, Guests of Disney Resort hotels are able to take advantage of Disney's complimentary transportation service from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Walt Disney World Resort. The service is an exclusive benefit offered to Disney Resort Guests, and sadly the service will roll to a stop at the end of this year. There's no cost to use Magical Express, but you will need to make a reservation before you arrive. 

    To sign up for Disney's Magical Express service, all you'll need is your resort confirmation information as well as flight information for each member of your travel party. You can book your reservation using this convenient online form, or by calling to speak to a Cast Member at 1 (866) 599-0951. If you use the online form, you'll be sent a confirmation email once your reservation is complete. I usually print my confirmation to carry with me when I travel, but It's not necessary to do so.

    When you arrive at MCO, you'll just need to make a quick stop by Baggage Claim to retrieve your luggage before you make your way to the Magical Express check-in area (Terminal B, Level 1) to board your motorcoach. You'll then be able to present your MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile Pass, or a government-issued photo ID to check in for your transportation reservation. Once you're all checked in, you'll be directed to the queue for your bus, and then it's off to your resort!

    I hope this helps get you all squared away with the transportation for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Please come back and visit us here at planDisney if you have more questions before you arrive - we're happy to help.
