    Our trip is November 5 to November 11. We are arriving the night before and staying at a airport hotel. Can we use the Magical Express transportation the next morning?

    Hey, Patricia!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. What a fantastic question!  We have used Disney’s Magical Express service so much I feel we own one of the buses.

    You do not need to fly in on the same day you want to take Disney's Magical Express to your Disney Resort hotel. You may only use this complimentary transportation if you are checking in to your hotel on the same day you want to use the bus service. Check-in at Disney’s Magical Express is located on Side B, Level 1, Ground Transportation.

    I would suggest calling Disney's Magical Express reservations at 407-939-1936 and make a reservation for the time you want to leave. This will ensure they have adequate buses scheduled to decrease wait times.

    Since you are not traveling directly to your Disney Resort hotel, you will need to claim your bags, take them to your room and then bring them with you when you get on the bus.

    Also, make sure when you speak with reservations that they have your correct departure information. This is important for Resort Airline Check-In Service. Even though I am sad to leave I love this convenience.

    Disney Dad Tip: As a suggestion, I recommend you attend the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park. With winter festive decorations, an “iced” Cinderella Castle, hot cocoa and cookies to enjoy and “snow” falling on Main Street, U.S.A., this party is a holiday season must do.

    Patricia, enjoy a wonderful trip making many Magical Memories!
