    Two more questions also. 1. What does making a reservation for the magical express from the airport do? 2. If I make a reservation for a restaurant before the park opens, can I still take the bus or will i need a taxi? Thank you!!

    Hi Sarah,

    Thank you for coming back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel for help! We love answering questions for our guests.

    Disney's Magical Express is complimentary ground transportation for guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. Motor coaches pick you up at Orlando's International Airport and bring you to your resort. If you are flying on select airlines, you can even check your luggage in at your departing airport and your luggage will appear in your room later that day. When your vacation is over, Disney's Magical Express will take you back to the airport.

    As for making a dining reservation at a restaurant prior to a park opening, you have a few options. Disney transportation rarely runs between resorts. Most transportation runs between resorts and theme parks and Disney Springs. These are transfer points to get you from one resort to another. As long as theme park is opening in enough time, you are fine. You can talk to the concierge at your resort about transportation options including a taxi or Uber.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
