    Hi! I was wondering, can you (when you arrive at the airport) take a shuttle directly to a park? Or do you HAVE to go to your resort from there??

    Hi, Tiffany!

    You sound just like my family - we want to get to the parks ASAP! There is no time to waste once we land at MCO! No worries, the magic will be ready and waiting for you.

    Disney's Magical Express transportation will take you to your resort only. From there, you can hop on a bus/boat/monorail and head to your theme park of choice. While this can alter a bit, I usually figure that by about 2.5 hours after landing, we can be in a theme park. For a bit of a cushion, I usually book my first FastPass+ selection or dining reservation for about 3 hours past landing.

    When you arrive at your resort, if your room is ready you can pop in to freshen up and drop your carry-on bags. If your room is not ready, Bell Services will be happy to store any luggage you may have brought with you. Any checked bags with Magical Express will arrive in your room several hours after you arrive.

    Plan ahead with your FastPass+ and your dining reservations and your first day will be filled with magic, even with that quick stop at your resort.
