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.

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?

Makes no difference time wise. The total distance is about the same.

If you are at the Hyatt Hotel end (end further from ME) and want to use the moving sidewalks you would need to traverse the terminal on Level 3 and then find the neon B and the escalator down.

We are staying overnight at an airport hotel on Thursday night and then having the hotel shuttle bring us back to the airport REALLY early on Friday. To get as close as possible to the ME desk, where should we tell the shuttle service to drop us off at? I am totally confused with the map.

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere.

I believe Northwest is the best drop off point. Then go down to Level 1.

Our flight is scheduled to arrive in Orlando at 11:00 p.m. Will ME still be able to pick up our checked luggage and bring it to our resort for delivery to our room the next morning or will we need to get it ourselves and take it on the bus with us to the resort?

I am now confused

Sorry, I am now confused by some of the posts here.

We arrive (hopefully) Nov 9th around 11:30 am on Airtran. I know I come out of the monorail, and walk left. Do I have to stop on Level 2 for baggage claim, or do I go directly to level 1 to check in for ME? I have luggage tags and I plan on using them. Disney still picks up the luggage, right?

Proceed to Terminal B, Level 1.
