    Is there a specific time that the Magical Express bus picks you up or do they run constantly?

    Hi Alyssa!

    Disney's Magical Express is a great perk of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. I love knowing that all my airport travel arrangements, including my luggage transfer to my resort, are taken care of. It is such a stress-free way to travel! And, best of all, it is included with every Walt Disney World Resort reservation, free of charge!

    When it is time to prepare for your departure from Walt Disney World (cue the sad music!), you'll receive an assigned pick-up time for return service to Orlando International Airport. The details, and your bus boarding pass, will be on your resort room door the day before departure. This small packet will include all of the details about when you'll depart, where to meet, and information regarding Resort Airline Check-in, if you'd like to take advantage of this service. Be sure to keep the Magical Express Boarding pass handy as your MagicBands will not work to check in for the bus.

    Generally, your Disney Magical Express return trip boarding time will be about 3 hours prior to flight departure time for domestic flights. During very busy times of the year, this may be a little sooner. Either way, you should arrive at Orlando International Airport with plenty of time for security and catching your flight.

    For additional details on Disney's Magical Express, resort airline check-in, baggage transfers and more, visit the Walt Disney World help center pages.

    I hope this helps! Have a great vacation!
