    If we are not flying in and out of MCO, but rather driving a rental from another airport and dropping it off/picking it up at MCO, can we still take the Magical Express to our resort?

    Hi, Teresa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. I have actually spoken to the wonderful Cast Members at Disney's Magical Express a few times recently about this very scenario. There are many times that guests may be able to save money flying into another airport and driving to Orlando International Airport (MCO) or possibly by flying in late the night before their Walt Disney World Resort hotel check-in and choosing to stay that night at the Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport hotel. Either way, Disney's Magical Express Service is there to help you!

    All guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are entitled to a ride on Disney's Magical Express to or from the Orlando International Airport on the days of their resort check-in and check-out. The best way to set this up is to give Disney's Magical Express a call at (866) 599-0951. You can let the Cast Member know the time you would like to leave the airport as well as what time you will be returning to the airport. They can reserve your family spots on the motorcoach that will be running to and from your resort at the closest available time. I do want to encourage you to give yourself plenty of time on the return trip back to Orlando International Airport to pick up your new rental and get to the other airport before your flight home. I would hate for you to miss that flight!

    I hope this information helps you set up your first and last magical vacation moments! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
