    We are staying at the Art of Animation Resort and using Magical Express. On departure day, we have a character breakfast reserved at the Grand Floridian. Can I arrange for the Magical Express to pick us up from there, and luggage from Art of Animation?

    Hello Julie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a very good question.

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can enjoy several benefits, including complimentary transportation to and from Orlando International Airport with Disney's Magical Express. If you are staying at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, that’s where the motor coach to take you to the airport will pick you up, not at a different location. In addition, your luggage must travel with you at all times. The night before departure a Transportation Notice will be delivered to your room informing your pick-up time and location at the hotel. 

    The morning of your reservation at 1900 Park Fare, you can leave your luggage with Bell Services at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and go to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to enjoy your breakfast. Afterwards, you will have to return to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort in time for your Disney’s Magical Express pick-up time. Retrieve your luggage with Bell Services and wait for your motor coach. Don’t forget that you will have to give your driver the Transportation Notice delivered to your room the night before. If you are worried about time, I recommend taking a taxi back to Disney’s Art of Animation Resort instead of using Disney Transportation.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Julie! Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please stop by real soon if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
