Disney provides free transportation aboard the Magical Express airport shuttle bus to resort guests.
Even more magical is the complimentary luggage service, also included, which allows you to say bon voyage to your checked luggage, allowing you to bypass baggage claim and have them magically delivered to your room.
This added luxury allows you to travel light — your MagicBand is all you need to board the Magical Express. Expect about 30-45 minutes from the airport to your resort, as the bus will make up to three stops at other resorts.
Resort pickup for your return to the airport is scheduled 4 hours in advance of your flight to get you to Orlando’s lengthy security lines in plenty of time to make your flight. Resort guests can check into their flight and check baggage at the resort, before even boarding. This added benefit can free you up to spend a few more hours at the parks after checking out of your room.
