    We are taking magical express and want to get to park as soon as possible. Our arrival flight lands at 840am, well before our hotel check in. Can we get off at the first magical express stop even if it isn’t our hotel and go straight to the park?


    Thanks for your question!

    When you are taking the Disney's Magical Express bus from the Orlando airport to your respective resort, they don't check people off of a list as they disembark at any given resort hotel. So if you want to get off the bus at that first resort stop, you are certainly welcome to do so. This will not impact your checked bags getting through to your resort room as planned.

    I will suggest, however, if you ask the driver how long it will take to get to your resort, you may find it won't take much longer, especially early in the morning. Going to your own resort will give you the benefit of being able to check your carry-on baggage with the Bell Services desk before heading to a park. I do this every time so that when I am headed to the parks I can go without a bag, and skip the baggage security check lines at the parks. But that is just what I prefer to do.

    Please write us back if you have any additional questions!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
