Magical Express Changes Pick-Up Windows at Walt Disney World

Disney's Magical Express

In November of 2017, Walt Disney World had updated the Magical Express service to pick guests up for domestic flights 4 hours in advance of their flight, instead of the previous 3 hours in advance.  This was put into effect due to increased security measures at Orlando International airport during the busy holiday season.  Disney wanted to be sure that guests would make it through security in time for their return flights.  It appears that Disney has reviewed this policy and determined that the pick-up windows could return to 3 hours in advance.  This change back will take effect starting on January 11th, 2018.  Guests who are catching International flights will still be picked up 4 hours prior to their flight.

Disney’s Magical Express is the transportation service that Disney uses to take guests and their bags to and from the airport for their stay at Walt Disney World.  It is a free service that is included with all Disney resort stays.  Guests will receive a notice at their room the day prior to check-out which will include their exact pickup time and information about the check-in service for luggage.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
