    I have used the Magical Express before and just love it!This trip I am planning on flying Southwest Airlines.I did not see that airline as an option when looking for quotes on ur website.So my question is what do I need to do differently with that airline?

    Hi Kim!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question!

    I fly Southwest Airlines frequently myself, to and from Walt Disney World! I'm happy to tell you that you're all set using that airline. There's nothing that you need to do differently to use Disney's Magical Express!

    If you haven't already arranged for it, contact Disney's Magical Express at 1-866-599-0951, or Disney World directly if you've booked a Magic Your Way Vacation Package at 407-939-7675, to add the Complimentary Airport Transportation Service to your travel plans.

    You'll receive a package in advance your package which will contain your Motor Coach Bus vouchers as well as your brightly coloured Magical Express luggage stickers which you'll affix to your checked luggage prior to dropping it off at your airport with Southwest Airlines as you check in.

    Ever better, Southwest is now also a part of the Resort Airline Check-In Service which will magically whisk your luggage back to the Orlando Airport for you, from your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel on departure day. You'll find all of this information on the Walt Disney World website's Complimentary Airport Transportation page which I've provided a link to for you.

    If you're looking to book Southwest Airlines for your flights within a Walt Disney World vacation package, you may not see it as an option as I don't believe it's an airline associated with Disney Travel Co. I always book my WDW Resort, tickets and dining plan through Disney Travel Co. and include Disney's Magical Express Service, and then book my own airfare separately through the carrier that I prefer to use.

    If you have any other questions, please write me back Kim and I'll be happy to assist you!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
