Walt Disney World Transportation Information

Disney's Magical Express

As a Disney Resort Hotel Guest, Disney's Magical Express Service offers you complimentary transportation between Orlando International Airport and your Disney World Resort hotel.

With Disney's Magical Express Service, your vacation starts the moment you land at Orlando International Airport:

  • No need to pick up your luggage when you arrive; Disney transports you from the airport to your Disney Resort hotel, while your tagged bags are collected and delivered to your room.
  • Enjoy comfortable transportation to and from the airport in deluxe motorcoaches.
  • When your vacation's over, you and your bags are whisked back from your Disney Resort to the airport.
  • What happens if you don't have your Magical Express booklet?

Other transportation options include a rental car or private transfer service. Either can be added to your package for an additional fee or booked on your own.

Rental Cars and Florida Tolls - Walt Disney World
