    Hello! I am thinking about driving down and flying back home. If we drive and turn the car in at the airport are we able to use magical express to get to the resort? Thanks for all your help °○°

    Hi Magan,

    Thanks for posting your question about Disney's Magical Express to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I called the team at Disney's Magical Express to gather some information before responding to your query and I learned some exciting new information. If you return your rental car to Orlando International Airport, they will give you a ride on one of their luxury motor coaches to Walt Disney World Resort. You will need to present your Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation number to the Cast Members at the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center on floor one of terminal B at the airport. Once the Cast Member who greets you confirms that all of you are on the reservation, they will direct you to the appropriate motor coach.  

    While you are at the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center, you may as well take the opportunity to share your return flight information with them. Then, the day before your flight home, you'll receive an envelope on your hotel room door which will alert you to the time you will need to be present at the front of your hotel to board Disney's Magical Express back to Orlando International Airport. You certainly don't want to miss your ride.

    With regard to your drive south, keep in mind that Walt Disney World Resort does have National and Alamo car rental counters at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and at the Car Care Center near Magic Kingdom Park. If you return your rental car there, you won't need to ride Disney's Magical Express from Orlando International Airport. That may give you a bit more time to spend enjoying the attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Wishing you a safe drive and many magical memories,
