Magical express

Quick question: does the magical express run at all hours? We need to leave the resort at 5:05am which is three hours before our departure time.

Yep, 24/7, but you will have to take your luggage with you because the RAC desk will not be open in time to take your bags.

They are picking us up at 3:30 am for a 6:30 am flight, EEEK! So, yes, they run 24/7.

Yup! Our flight arrived at nearly midnight (hours and hours delayed) and we left at like 4am to make a 7am flight home.

For an early flight such as this, I would book our last night at the airport Hyatt and get a couple extra hours of sleep. Wouldn't be missing anything at WDW at 3:30am.

Even during the wee hours of the morning the buses do come early. You need to be out at the bus stop, ready to go, 15 minutes before your scheduled time. My dad almost missed his bus back to the airport when I forgot to pass along that little nugget of information.
