    We are staying at BLT in 12/2018 for 7 nights but fly in late the night before our reservation and are staying at airport hotel. Can we use DME to take us to BLT on our check in day?

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's great to hear you're planning a stay at Walt Disney World. As a member of Disney Vacation Club, I am happy to call Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort one of my Home Resorts, and we absolutely love our every stay there. The close and convenient walk to Magic Kingdom Park is a fantastic perk just by itself. The shops and dining options at Disney's Contemporary Resort make for more great perks. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend California Grill. It's my all-time favorite Walt Disney World restaurant.

    Speaking of favorite, we always make a point to travel from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World on Disney's Magical Express. We always appreciate the comfort and simplicity of the complimentary transportation. In general, Disney's Magical Express service is designed and intended to transport Guests to their Resort hotel on the same day as their check-in, and it sounds like those are your plans.

    I can share that on a previous trip, I had a travel situation similar to yours. My flight arrived prior to my check-in date. I called and made arrangements with Disney's Magical Express to travel to my Resort hotel on my check-in date. My best suggestion for you is to call Walt Disney World Resort at 407‐939-1936 and follow the voice prompts for transportation to speak to a Cast Member who can help with a reservation for Disney's Magical Express.

    Andrea, I hope your time at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort makes for a magical Walt Disney World stay!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
