Follow the waving Mickey hands! LoL!
Seriously, they are so easy to find. Take the tram from your gate to the main terminal. Go to ground transportation...there are so many signs that you will have no trouble finding it. My nephew and his new wife flew into Orlando for their honeymoon and she asked me if it was the Disney airport!

You will head to the tram, from your gate. This tram will take you to the main terminal. Now...I'm going to assume that you don't have checked bags that you need to get..that you have put your yellow DME tags on them. So....when you get off the tram, look up and to the sides. You are now entering the main terminal area..you have arrived on either Side A or Side B. You want to head to the Side B sign overhead. You are on level 3. You want to go down to level 1, ground transportation. So, take either the elevator or the escalator down. When you get to level 1, you will see the outside driveway area, where the buses arrive. There will also be car rental counters and the Mears counter. DME is all the way at the end of the area. Once you get to level 1 you will see signs pointing the way...or, just follow the crowd!!

Be sure to follow the signs for B side. Magical Express is only on B.

The main terminal building is a large rectangle. The Magical Express welcoming area is in one corner, the B side at the end away from the Hyatt hotel (multistory cavernous atrium), on the lowest level.

After exiting security and coming out into the open, look to the side and very slightly up to see the 3 foot high neon letter B that you almost can't miss. (Hint: from gates 1 to 59 go to the right; from higher numbered gates go to the left.) If you head for the neon A and don't need to go that way to the baggage carousels, immediately go in the opposite direction.

Hint: As you walk down the corridor on the B side, the windows to the outside should be on your left.

Hint: From any gate or airline or tram you exit (and re-enter) security at one end of the main building or the other, more or less halfway between the A side and the B side.

Hotel scam! Someone "from the front desk" calls your room phone or knocks on the door, usually after midnight, asking for your credit card number to complete your billing or you will be kicked out. Don't give it to him. It can wait until dawn when you stop by the front desk. This includes Disney's resorts too.

Follow the herds of people with Disney bags/shirts, and mouse ears.

The terminal is well marked- you'll find it. Just remember it's on the B side.

I snagged this photo of the ME paperwork from another blog. I take no credit for it:

Only one problem with 'follow the herds of people with Disney bags/shirts, and mouse ears'....those are usually the people leaving!!!

A good way to remember is the bus is on the B side or B for Bus.
