    Travelling from Australia next Dec. What is the earliest pick-up time from my Disney Resort on the Magical Express to MCO? I read that 3 hours is needed for Domestic flights. I am looking at confirming flights but am unsure of the Resort pick-up times.

    Hello Helen!

    Greetings from the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's incredible to hear you will be visiting from Australia later this year. That's quite the journey to enjoy the Most Magical Place on Earth and I couldn't be happier for you. 

    When returning to the Orlando International Airport from your Disney Resort Hotel via Disney's Magical Express, the return pick-up time for international flights is scheduled 4 hours prior to your flight's scheduled departure time. This leaves plenty of time to get to your gate and usually just a little extra time, which I love, for last minute shopping, grabbing a bite to eat, or both.

    Have a wonderful time planning your flights and the rest of your magical vacation, Helen. We'd love to hear from you again should you have any other questions or concerns.
