    Reservations magical express

    Hi Lisa!

    We are tickled to have you here at planDisney with the first of what we hope are many more planning questions. In just a few days, you’ll be celebrating the holidays in the Most Magical Place on Earth! With festive decorations, delicious food, and characters decked out in holiday attire, a Walt Disney World vacation in December is pure holly jolly fun. 

    Disney’s Magical Express will be your sleigh ride over to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel from Orlando International Airport. Unlike Santa’s ride, this one offers round-trip service and is complimentary to all Guests staying at one of these Walt Disney World Resort hotels. To make a reservation for Disney's Magical Express, call (866) 599-0951. Make sure you have both your Disney Resort Hotel reservation confirmation number and flight information ready. 

    Just so you are prepared for the new changes to the service, Guests now have to claim their own luggage from the baggage claim area at Orlando International Airport and have it loaded on a bus at Disney's Magical Express check-in area, located in the Ground Transportation Area, first level of Terminal B. 

    My last planDisney tip is to look for the character cavalcades and those special holiday moments that will be sprinkled throughout the parks. There are multiple cavalcades offering favorite characters, dancing reindeer, and even Santa Claus himself that appear at random times during the day. It’s exciting to be surprised by pop-up appearances from Mickey and friends and heartwarming to see them interacting with Guests. And FYI they are called flotillas at Disney's Animal Kingdom because they happen on boats floating down Discovery River.

    Lisa, I’m sending you candy cane wishes and sugar plum dreams for your holiday vacation! Please gift us with more questions under the planDisney tree anytime.

    Happy Holidays!
