    Kayla from IL Asked

    I am planning a first time vacation for our daughter who will be 20 months old before her baby sibling arrives in July! We will be arriving at MCO close to 11PM. What do you recommend to help us get to the resort so late, especially with a little one?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kayla! 

    Kayla, when I was expecting, we also made a magical journey to Walt Disney World Resort for a special trip with my then 2-year-old. My little one loved being the center of attention and we made some fantastic memories as our last vacation as a family of 3. I also had a great excuse to eat ALL the yummy Disney snacks like Dole Whips and Mickey Pretzels.

    For your upcoming trip, I would recommend that you take advantage of Disney's Magical Express Service. When you arrive at MCO, simply grab your bags from baggage claim and head over to the far side of Terminal B, past all the rental car counters. There, you will board a bus that will whisk you away to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel in true Disney style. 

    I am not sure if you are planning on it, but when getting in for a flight this late, I would make sure that you bring your stroller on the plane with you, as opposed to checking it at baggage claim, so that you have it as soon as you land. Hopefully your little one will sleep right through the journey, but if not, Disney's Magical Express plays movies on the short (30-45 minutes) trip to help keep the whole family entertained. 

    To sign up for Disney's Magical Express, simply call (407) 939-5277 and the friendly Cast Member will be able to get you all set up!

    While you are visiting, be sure to rest as much as you need to, visit the Baby Care Centers for diaper changes, potty breaks, and a cool place to rest, and HYDRATE. We always bring a cooler under the stroller full of water and sports drinks.

    Kayla, Please come back here to planDisney if we can help answer any questions about where to eat, what to do, or any questions that you may have about visiting when you have an extra set of ears on board. 

    See you real soon!
