    We have never used the Magical Express. Do we need to contact someone so they know to pick us up at the airport on arrival and pick us up at the hotel when departing?

    Hi Donald,

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel! 

    If you haven't used Disney's Magical Express Transportation service yet, you're in for a real treat!  Riding an air-conditioned luxury motorcoach from the Orlando International Airport to your Disney resort is a fabulous, hassle-free way to begin your magical Walt Disney World vacation.  Here's how it works:

    When you book your reservation, just let the Walt Disney Travel Office or your travel agent know that you wish to take advantage of this complimentary service.  Then, upon your arrival at the airport, just proceed to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center in terminal B, level 1.  If you've already booked your reservation and you haven't signed up for Disney Magical Express, that's not a problem.  You can either call your travel agent to add it or you can call (407) WDW-MAGIC to reserve a spot on the bus.  Later, on the penultimate day of your vacation, a letter will be hung on your resort room door telling you when to pick up your return bus to the airport.  Typically, for domestic flights, it is three hours before your scheduled flight. 

    I highly recommend that you give this service a try!  I think you'll really enjoy the experience.

    Thanks for a great question.
