What Exactly is Disney’s Magical Express And How Does it Work?

Welcome to For Love of the Mouse. We are so excited that you stopped by. On our blog, we cover all things Disney and beyond. Come for the Disney, stay for the lifestyle, health, beauty and more! Be sure to follow us on Instagram at ForLoveOfMouse, on Facebook at For The Love of The Mouse and on YouTube at For Love of The Mouse. Let’s get started!

38Today, we are going to talk all about Disney’s Magical Express. An incredible and convenient perk available to all guests staying at any Walt Disney World resort. This service is included in the cost of your resort stay and includes some major perks including not waiting at baggage claim.

Let’s get started.

Anyone staying on Disney property has the option to use Disney’s Magical Express to get to and from their resort from Orlando International Airport. We highly recommend and always and I mean always use this service.

40Disney’s Magical Express is Disney’s complimentary transportation from Orlando International Airport to each and every Walt Disney Resort available to all resort guests but yes, you must be staying on Walt Disney World property.

It’s so simple.

After you book your flights and your resort, contact Disney and tell them you want to add on Disney’s Magical Express.

Here is how to reserve your Magical Express reservation straight off the Disney website including some important details to remember:

From the U.S. or Canada
(407) 939-1936

From the United Kingdom
0800 16 90 730

39Please be sure to include your flight information when you make your reservation so Disney’s Magical Express can coordinate your motorcoach and luggage service.

International Guests
Reserve through the same travel agent or tour operator who booked your trip. Tell your agent you would like to include Disney’s Magical Express with your Walt Disney World Resort hotel plans.

30 days or thereabouts prior to the first day of your trip, you will receive your yellow luggage tags in the mail. Each person in your party receives one yellow luggage tag that goes on your checked luggage.

41When you check in and check your luggage at the airport, they take it and you won’t see it again until after you are checked in to your resort.

When you land in Orlando, head straight to the Magical Express check in and bypass baggage claim. Disney is going to handle that for you.

Be sure you have your Magic Band on before you get to the Magical Express check-in which is located on the “B” side of the airport. Your Magic Band is what you will scan with the castmember in order to board the Magical Express.

Once on board, sit back and relax because you are on your way to Walt Disney World.

42About four to six hours after arriving in Walt Disney World, your luggage will arrive in your resort room.

We absolutely love Magical Express. It is such a jumping off point for us, for any Walt Disney World vacation and it saves money because you aren’t renting a car, you aren’t paying to park that car at your resort or at any of the parks or the ticket and transportation center. Going car-less in Disney is a must for us to increase our magical experience and put money back in our pockets.

Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, that it all started with a mouse.
