    So, I understand the Magical Express Transportation system which is pretty cool but.... Will the bus allow Resort Guests to ride "back" to the airport to greet later arriving family members? Thanks Rick

    Hi Rick, and welcome to our Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing your question to us!

    I'm super happy to know that you're planning to ride Disney's Magical Express. I love to ride it - I feel like my vacation begins right at the airport, and it feels fantastic!

    All Guests staying at a Disney Hotel get one ride from the Orlando International Airport to their Disney Hotel on their check-in date and another one back to the Orlando International Airport from their Disney Hotel on their check-out day. You could choose to use one of those to greet members at the airport if you're on a split stay, but it may not be the most straightforward logistics to figure out.

    The best way to greet family members at the Orlando International Airport the Disney way is to use a Minnie Van, in my opinion. The fun never ends when you use a Minnie Van™ as transportation, as all drivers are knowledgeable Cast Members, the vehicles are roomy, can accommodate up to 6 Guests and are equipped with two car seats for the little ones. While you can request your very own Minnie Van™ through the Lyft App to ride inside the Walt Disney World Resort, airport shuttle service reservations must be made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY. How do they sound?

    If you want to surprise family members on a Walt Disney World Vacation, you can also use the help of Disney Floral & Gifts, as their skilled Cast Members can prepare beautiful in-room celebrations to make loved ones feel extra special! When I found a gift from Disney Floral & Gifts waiting for me on my room, it felt like Fairy Godmother herself was welcoming me to my vacation - and that's a feeling worth spreading around!

    I hope this information helps you greet your family the best way possible, Rick! If you want more advice, please, stop by so we can help you even further. We'd love to!

    May the magic be with you all,
