    When using Disney Magical Express from a hotel to the airport, how many hours before airline departure do you depart your hotel?

    Hi Alyce!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney's Magical Express, sometimes referred to as the saddest ride at Walt Disney World, will collect you from your Disney Resort hotel and return you to Orlando International Airport in comfort and style, in good time for your flight home.  The way this works is on the day before your departure you will receive a transportation notice advising you of the time of your motorcoach.  This will be approximately 3 hours before your flight time for domestic flights, and 4 hours ahead of International flights. If you do not receive this notice, please call at the Front Desk of your Resort hotel, or phone (866) 599-0951.

    Disney Resort Transportation is complimentary and available to all guests during your stay, so make the most of all the different ways to travel around the Resort and to the theme parks. Disney buses usually begin operating 45 minutes before park opening and will arrive every 20 minutes.  The monorail service runs every 10 minutes from the Transportation and Ticket Center to Epcot, or to Magic Kingdom Park.  Boats will run between select Disney Resort hotels and certain theme parks, or to Disney Springs - in fact I often just take a boat ride as a round-trip, just as a way to spend a relaxing afternoon!  We are all looking forward to the newest addition to Disney Transport - the Disney Skyliner which will starting operating this coming Fall 2019.  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
