We are regulars at Disney World. By that, I mean we take the kids there annually. The four of us love all things Disney, but one of my favorite things personally is that there is absolutely no need to rent a car while we’re down there. How great is that?
When we land at Orlando International Airport (MCO), Disney’s Magical Express is there waiting to take us to our resort. The Magical Express is complimentary round-trip airport transportation and luggage delivery for guests who are staying at Disney resorts One we landed, we just headed over to Disney’s Magical Express Welcome Center, which is located in the Main Terminal Building, B side, Level 1. The best part is that with the Magical Express service, you can skip the baggage claim because the Disney folks grab your bags for you and deliver them right to your room within a few hours. Sweet!
Of course, my favorite part of the 25 minute ride from the airport to the Disney property is seeing this:
Once we were all settled into our room (we stayed at Caribbean Beach – Jamaica), we needed to be able to get to our destination. We took an early flight the morning we left, so we did what we normally do – head to Downtown Disney for our first day. When you stay in Disney World, each resort has numerous bus stops where you can catch a bus to wherever you want to go: the four parks, the water parks or Downtown Disney.
Here is the gruesome twosome at our bus stop:
And don’t worry – if you just miss your bus (and it’s happened to us multiple times), another one usually comes along within about 20 minutes. Sometimes they’re crowded and sometimes they’re not, but either way, the buses are always air conditioned and will get you where you need to go!
Depending on where you stay or want to go, there are ferries to get you there and the monorail runs between the Magic Kingdom, Epcot and a few resorts near the Magic Kingdom.
It’s a really hassle free way to travel.
