Our flight into Orlando gets in early evening. We would like to stay the night at a hotel at the airport and then head to disney and WL in the am. I was wondering if Magical Express could take us in the morning rather than right when our plane lands. Anyone else do this ?? Thanks!

Yes, you can use the Magical Express transportation the morning after you arrive at the airport (the day you'll be checking in at your Disney resort).

You won't be able to check your bags through to your Disney resort from you home airport. Just bring your bags with you to the Magical Express motorcoach, and the driver will store them in the luggage hold. (A tip is appropriate when the driver returns your bags to you at your resort).

When you make you Magical Express reservations, just specify an approximate departure time from MCO. Others on this board have recommended specifying a flight that arrives approximately when you want to depart from the airport; you can do that, but it's not necessary.

HOWEVER, when you compare the cost of the Orlando Airport Hyatt with a Disney resort, you may find that you really aren't saving much money. There's a lot to be said for going all the way to your Disney resort on your inbound travel day. That way, you'll wake up at Walt Disney World the next morning, and you'll have the full day to have fun. Otherwise, you'll wake up at the airport; you'll spend several hours packing up, taking the motorcoach, and checking in and your room may not be ready until 3 or 4 PM.
