    Erin from AB Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We are traveling to WDW in 11/17 from Canada with young children. Our flight arrives very late in the evening - is it possible to stay at a airport hotel the night we arrive, return to MCO the next morning, and the take Magical Express to our resort (AoA)?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Erin, with this excellent question!

    Disney’s Magical Express complimentary return airport service helps make your vacation so much easier. For arrivals between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM, your previously Disney’s Magical Express tagged luggage will arrive at your Disney Resort hotel a few hours after your Resort hotel check-in. For arrivals after 10:00 PM, you will need to go to Baggage Claim to retrieve your luggage yourself.

    Erin, you are welcome to stay at a hotel near or at Orlando International Airport and utilize Disney’s Magical Express the next morning as long as your Disney Resort hotel check-in is that same day. I highly recommend you contact a helpful and knowledgeable Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express at (866) 599-0951 to assist you with your booking. Please have your Disney Resort hotel confirmation and flight information on hand during your telephone call.

    You may wish to complete your Disney Resort hotel Online Check-In 60 days before your stay to expedite your arrival at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, where you’ll also receive your complimentary MagicBands.

    Don’t forget to customize your plans with My Disney Experience for Disney Dining Reservations, FastPass+ Planning and personalizing MagicBands.

    We hope this information is helpful, Erin and hope to be of assistance in the near future with your Disney Vacation planning!

    Best Disney Wishes!
