Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center Now Located in Terminal *B*
 
Okay folks, it's OFFICIAL!

The DME Welcome Center is now located at Terminal B, Level 1.


Will there be signs?
No. Orlando International Airport will not allow for signs.

Will there be Cast Members?
Yes. There will be cast members in the old area to direct guests to the new area.

The current DME desk is right below SW baggage claim. Where is the approximate location of the new desk? Should be go directly to level one and then walk or would it be faster to walk on level three to a specific escalator/elevator and then go to level one?

It's a shame Disney can't get signage.

If you are inside, and looking outside, it will be towards your right, 3/4 of the way down I believe.

Directly below United/Ted, US Airways, and Northwest.

If I am getting off of American Air which way would I go after exiting shuttle.

You would go across to Terminal B (must be on level 3 to do this) then proceed to Level 1 and follow to DME Welcome Center.

So if I'm flying SWA, I need to take the elevator to Level 3 and then go to Terminal B (where's that? Do I have to take the monorail?) and then down to 1st level?

SWA arrives on Side A of the terminal. You will get on the monorail, then when you get off the monorail, you will be headed directly for the main terminal. The two sides are plainly marked. You will be on Level 3 at this point. Walk over to Side B, then take the escalator down to level 2 (baggage claim) and then I take the elevator down to Level 1, ground transportation. But, this is only for after Oct 3...until then DME is on Side A.

The airport is roughly in the shape of an X, but on it's side. The top side would be side A, the bottom side would be side B, but they are joined completely in the middle of the X by the main terminal. Each arm of the X has a bunch of gates on it.

Found this link for anyone who may be confused about where to go. It's got a few different views of the layout of MCO and also one which says which airlines land on which side.

ok going on Oct 12, flying SW . do I still go down to baggage claim (getting my own bags) on A-side then go over to DME on B-side or will bags be on B-side baggage claim

goofy4tink 09-08-2006 01:47 PM

Your bags will still go to Side A. That was the big issue for us that arrived on Side B...we had to go down to level 2 on Side B if we wanted our luggage, then go back up to level 3 and cross to Side A and then go down to level 1 to get DME. That's the big reason I never claimed my own luggage before getting on the bus. It was way too much hassle. You may want to just let DME get your luggage and take it to the resort for you.

For anyone still worried about where they're going once off the plane, the new Magical Express packets have a map of the 3rd level of the airport. They even show the path you'll take depending on where you get off the plane.

THIS is GREAT news since I could not make head nor tail of all this info! :upsidedow Now I just haffa wait for my package to come :thumbsup2

It does sound confusing when it's just 'words'. However, when you get your DME packet, with the airport info in it, and then get to the airport, it will all be much clearer!! Have no fears. I know that it took me a trip or two before I could actually understand what the heck was going on with the whole Side A and Side B thing!!!

CAJUNWDWFAN 09-11-2006 09:54 AM

I guess I'm in the same situation for our trip in November.

We are flying American Airlines which arrives on side "A". We then have to pick up our luggage (we are arriving late) level 2, side A. Then go back up to level 3, side A then cross over to side B to head down to level 1, side B for magical express.

Is that correct?
