    What time do you have to catch Disney's Magical Express to leave Walt Disney World to return to Orlando Airport

    Hi Janet and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I enjoy using the combination of Resort Airline Check-In and Disney's Magical Express for my trip home from Walt Disney World Resort. Currently, your pick-up time for Disney's Magical Express will be 3 to 3.5 hours before your scheduled flight for domestic flights. This time window is subject to change based on conditions at Orlando International Airport. 

    For a time last fall, Disney's Magical Express was picking up Guests 4 to 4.5 hours before their flights because Guests were experiencing very long lines to get through security at the airport. Hopefully, those issues have been solved. The night before your departure you should receive your letter from Disney's Magical Express that will include your departure time. 

    Janet, thank you for visiting us again with another question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
