    We will be staying at PORS in September 2010. Our flight to go home is at 7:20 am. How early will the Magical Express pick us up from the hotel? I've heard it can be 3 hours before the flight!

    Hi Renae,

    The Magical Express bus does pick you up three hours before your flight.  In your case that is going to be really early in the morning.  The idea is to get you to the airport two hours before your flight to allow you enough time to get through security and get to your gate before it start boarding.

    The airport is about 35 minutes from the WDW resorts.  The bus driver needs to load guests luggage onto the bus, they will also be picking up guest from other resorts, and they need to make stops at both terminals when they reach Orlando International.  By the time you get to the airport you will find you have very little time to kill before you will need to board your plane.  Most airlines start boarding 30-45 minutes before the scheduled take-off.

    The Magical Express is provided at no charge.  You do have the choice of paying for a cab to take you to the airport.  You will need to speak with a castmember at your resort the night before.  They will be able to help you schedule a cab.

    Have a great trip - Michelle
