    Regarding the Magical Express, will I be able to catch it anytime on my arrival day or am I assigned to a certain bus based on my flight time? If my flight arrives late will that affect my bus reservation?

    Hi Kori!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I know air travel can be quite stressful and a delayed flight is not the most magical way to begin your vacation!

    When you reserve Disney's Magical Express, you will provide both arrival and departure flight information. For your arrival flight, this is used to estimate the influx of Guests throughout the day, but you are not assigned a specific bus and there is certainly flexibility as buses depart continuously throughout the day. For your departure flight though, they will give you a specific pick up time that is coordinated with one single bus making the trip back to Orlando International Airport within that time frame. If the return bus is missed, unfortunately this will affect your trip and you will have an additional expense of a taxi or ride sharing service to the airport. For the start of your vacation though, take it easy and don't stress, there will be a Disney's Magical Express ready and waiting for you regardless! To complete your Disney's Magical Express reservation, please give a friendly Cast Member a call at (407) 939-1936.

    I hope this helps to ease some of your concerns! Please come back and let us know if you have any other questions.
