    My trip ends on July 25 and my departure flight is at 6:00 AM. Do we have to get up at 2/3 AM or is there an option my mother and I can have where we can head to the airport, riding Disney's Magical Express, the night before, July 24?

    Hi, Elizabeth!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The only time I am a morning person is on a day when I am traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort.  An early morning wake-up call for my return trip is an entirely different story, so I certainly understand why you might wish to head to the airport the night before your bright and early flight.

    I called and spoke with a Disney's Magical Express Cast Member to see if what you proposed in your question would be possible.  The Cast Member told me that when you call to book Disney's Magical Express, if you provide them with your return flight information, they will automatically schedule your pick-up time for three hours prior to your flight.  However, she told me that if you simply tell them which Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you wish to be picked up at and at what time, rather than your flight information, that can be arranged.

    Another option that you might want to look into is the Minnie Van Service.  The Minnie Van airport shuttle operates between 7:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.  Although there is a fee to use the Minnie Van airport shuttle, many guests feel that the flexibility it offers in pick-up times is worth the cost.  Also, your red and white polka dot Minnie Van will get you to the airport in style!

    Have a magical day!
