Disney's Magical Express

Disney's Magical Express
Start and end your stay with complimentary motorcoach transportation to and from Orlando International Airport and select Walt Disney World Resort hotels, with complimentary luggage delivery. 

Be Magically Whisked Away

Board a motorcoach at Orlando International Airport and we’ll get you and your bags to your Disney Resort hotel.

When you reserve Disney’s Magical Express, you can begin your vacation the moment you step off the plane. Bypass baggage claim and avoid the inconvenience and cost of driving or finding ground transportation. With this special benefit of staying at select Disney Resort hotels, get from the airport to your accommodations in comfort and have your bags delivered directly to your room. You’ll also enjoy a complimentary ride back to Orlando International Airport on the day you check out of your Disney Resort hotel. Please note that pets are not permitted on Disney’s Magical Express but service animals are.

Luggage Delivery Service

This feature of Disney’s Magical Express is available for flights arriving between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM daily. Your luggage will travel separately, and it may take up to 3 hours after you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel for your luggage to be delivered to your room. Please pack any valuables, medications or anything you need immediately upon your arrival in Orlando in a carry-on bag—and have your MagicBand with you and easily accessible at the airport and when you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel. You do not need to be in your room to receive your luggage.

If your flight arrives before 5:00 AM or after 10:00 PM, please collect your luggage at baggage claim to bring with you on the motorcoach. Please note: Disney’s Magical Express service does not provide luggage-only transfer. You must be present on the motorcoach to have your luggage transported to a Disney Resort hotel.

Please make a reservation for Disney’s Magical Express with your travel agent. Let your agent know that you would like Disney’s Magical Express service included in your Resort hotel stay.

Please Do Not Pack MagicBands in Checked Luggage

Remember not to pack your MagicBands in your checked luggage, as they will be used to check in with Disney’s Magical Express and to unlock your room when you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel.

If you have not received your MagicBand, please be prepared to present your Disney’s Magical Express documents (which may have been mailed separately to you) or your resort reservation number to board the motorcoach, and you will receive your MagicBand upon arrival at your Disney Resort hotel.

International Guests

The day before check-out, a Transportation Notice will be delivered to your room. The pickup time and place for your motorcoach ride back to Orlando International Airport are listed on this notice. (Please be sure to provide us with your flight information when making your reservation.)

To ensure that you do not miss your flight, motorcoach pickup times are scheduled approximately 3 hours prior to your flight departure time for domestic flights and 4 hours prior for international flights. Please note that it is your responsibility to bring your luggage to the pickup point. Bell service luggage assistance is available upon request.

Resort Airline Check-In

Guests who fly on a participating airline and stay at select Disney Resort hotels are automatically enrolled in the Resort Airline Check-In service when arriving through Disney’s Magical Express. This service allows you to obtain your boarding pass and check your luggage at your Disney Resort hotel, bypassing airport check-in completely. If your flight is after 12:00 PM, your boarding pass will be delivered to your room on the morning of your departure.

If you choose not to check your luggage with Resort Airline Check-In, please have your luggage loaded on the motorcoach that will be taking you to the airport. Bell service luggage assistance is available upon request.
