    Are we required to travel only to our reserved Disney resort using Magical Express from MCO or can we use DME to visit a different resort for activities,etc before we use a different source of transportation to head back to our own Disney resort?

    Hi David!

    Thanks for coming by to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney's Magical Express is one of my favorite ways to start a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I love that it's so easy to simply sit back and relax on Mickey's motorcoach without having to worry about navigation or traffic. Plus, when I use the yellow Disney's Magical Express luggage tags, I don't even have to stop at baggage claim to pick up my checked bags as it will magically be delivered right to my Disney Resort hotel room!

    When traveling from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort using Disney's Magical Express, you are required to travel to your "home" Disney Resort hotel. Unfortunately, you are unable to travel to a different Disney Resort hotel or a theme park using Disney's Magical Express. Once you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel, you are welcome to use complimentary resort transportation to head to your first vacation activity.

    If you're looking for a quicker transportation option to start your vacation or for traveling between locations at Walt Disney World Resort, you should consider taking advantage of the Minnie Van Service. This service provides private, direct transportation by Disney Cast Members around Walt Disney World Resort and to Orlando International Airport. We love to use the Minnie Van Service during our vacations to get to early morning dining reservations and recreational activities because the service is so easy to use and it's so quick and efficient!

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
