Disney's Magical Express: Here's What You Need to Know

March 5, 2017



Disney's Magical Express or DME is Disney's complimentary transportation service to and from your resort during your stay at Walt Disney World.  Simply follow the signs at Orlando International Airport to the Disney Magical Express and let the magic begin.  Please note that this service is only available to guests staying at a Disney resort and arriving or departing from Orlando International Airport.



Prior to Your Resort Arrival


  • If you have decided you want to use DME, please be sure to call (407) 939-1936 and schedule your reservation or if you have a travel agent, they will set this service up for you.  You will then receive luggage tags and other DME related documents prior to your trip. 

  • Do not pack your MagicBands as you will need these to access your room when you arrive at the resort.  They can also be used to board the Magical Express if you do not have your DME documents handy.

  • When you board the Magical Express, it is good to know that you might have to wait awhile on the motor coach, so keep this in mind when scheduling your Fastpasses or dining reservations.

  • Disney will take your luggage to and from Orlando International Airport for you at no extra charge between the hours of 5am and 10pm.  Keep in mind that this service can take up to 3 hours before your luggage will arrive at your resort room.

  • Between the hours of 10pm and 5am, you will have to pick up your luggage at baggage claim (on level 2) and bring it with you on the Magical Express as Disney's luggage service does not operate during these hours.



Before Your Departure


  • Guests who fly with participating airlines and stay at a Disney Resort will automatically be enrolled in Disney's Resort Airline Check-in service.  With this service, you have the ability to obtain your boarding pass and check your luggage at your Disney Resort.  If you choose not to take advantage of this service, you can take your luggage with you on the DME.

  • The day before you check-out, you will receive a Transportation Notice at your room.  This will let you know where you will be getting picked up by the DME and at what time.  To ensure you do not miss your flight, pickup time is 3 hours before departure for domestic flights and 4 hours before departure for international.



Disney's Magical Express is a stress-free service that Disney provides and is absolutely FREE!!!  Let the magic begin with Disney's Magical Express!
