    I am staying at Pop Century. What time do I need to be back to the hotel from the park if my flight leaves at 7PM? If I decide to take a taxi from hotel to airport (flight leaving at 7pm), what time do I need to be at airport and how much does it cost?

    Hello Marjorie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney's Pop Century is my most frequented and favorite Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and as a result, the one that I have had to say goodbye to the most when I head back to Orlando International Airport.

    If you are planning to use Disney's Magical Express for your trip back to Orlando International Airport on your Check-Out date, you will be provided with information at your Resort Hotel Room the night before as to the time of your pickup by the motorcoach. Since the pickup time is roughly 3 hours before your domestic flight is scheduled to leave, this would require you to be at the front of Disney's Pop Century Resort sometime around 4pm.

    If you decide to take alternate transportation, the trip from Walt Disney World Resort can take anywhere from 25 minutes to 50 minutes depending on the time of day and traffic. You will need to contact any third party vendor to determine the cost for the trip.

    A new option provided by Walt Disney World Resort for guests traveling to Orlando International Airport is the Minnie Van Service. Unlike using Minnie Vans on Walt Disney World Resort property, Guests looking to book a trip in a Minnie Van to Orlando International Airport must make reservations by calling (407)939-7529 in lieu of the Lyft App on any smart device. The fee is a $150 flat rate, one way for up to 6 passengers and only available at certain times during the day.

    Have a Magical Trip!
