Disney's Magical Express

    I am going to Venice, Florida prior to my Disney World trip. May I return my rental car to Orlando Airport and take Magical Express to Pop Century?

    Hi there JuliAnne, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for cruising by with your planning question. I'd be happy to assist you today.

    The Gulf Coast of Florida is so lovely. I have family in Sarasota that I frequently visit before or after a Walt Disney World vacation, and I've been in your shoes before. While a rental car is necessary to get me where I need to go elsewhere in the Sunshine State, once I arrive on Disney property, I prefer to sit back, relax, and let the Disney bus, monorail, and watercraft Cast Members take the wheel. 

    JulieAnne, because Disney's Magical Express® is included with your onsite stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort, you are certainly entitled to take advantage of this service. When you call (407) 939-1936 to book your trip aboard the magical motor coach, explain your situation and provide an approximate arrival time at Orlando International Airport. 

    As much as I love riding Disney's Magical Express®, I wanted to offer an alternative that may save you some time. Did you know that Walt Disney World has onsite car rental services? The Car Care Center located near the Magic Kingdom Park offers rentals and accepts drop-offs from Alamo Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental. There is even a complimentary shuttle that provides door-to-door service from the rental car facility to your Resort Hotel. Other rental car companies have facilities near Disney Springs, but you may need to take a taxi or rideshare from these offsite facilities to Disney's Pop Century Resort. Every hour at Walt Disney World is precious, and we are always looking for ways to maximize our vacation time. 

    I hope this has been helpful as your figure out those last-minute travel details. Enjoy the sand and sun of Venice, and have a groovy stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort!
