    WDW for 5 days, leave for St Augustine for 5 days, rtn to WDW for 6 more days. Picking up a rental car at airport to go to St. Augustine. Would we be entitled to use Magic Express from hotel to airport when leaving and back to hotel on return?

    Hi Roxanne,

    Let me see if I am understanding your question correctly.  Are you hoping to take Disney's Magical Express back to the airport after your first five day stay at Walt Disney World to pick up a rental car?  If so, I'm afraid the answer to your question is probably no.  Disney's Magical Express is available to guests staying at Walt Disney World only on the days of their arrival and departure at Orlando International Airport.  The Cast Members who arrange your transportation on Disney's Magical Express will ask for your inbound and outbound flight numbers when you book. 

    Instead of renting a car at the airport, you might want to consider renting a car right on Disney property.  For instance, you could pick up a National or Alamo rental car at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel or you could reserve a car at the Alamo rental desk at the Car Care Center near the Magic Kingdom.  Then, upon your return from St. Augustine, it would be very easy to return your rental car to either location.

    Good luck with your vacation planning.  Let us know if you have any additional questions.  We'd be happy to help!
