Pretty Cool: Disney's new Magical Express service

The following is from Screamscape

Disney will launch their new Disney’s Magical Express service. The service will be available to guests flying on six airlines (Delta, American, Continental, Song, United, and Ted) and will allow the guest to print their boarding passes and check their bags while still at WDW, hours before they have to be at the airport. The service will free them up to spend their final day at Disney and not worry about getting themselves to the airport or standing in the long check-in lines at the terminal. The service will work both ways as well as guests can specially check their bags at their home airports and skip the waiting at the luggage carousel in Orlando, because the bags will be delivered right to their rooms. Then there is a new free shuttle program to and from the airport that Disney is contracting out with Mears. Best of all, Disney is not planning on charging a dime for the service for at least the first 18 months.

Heres the link:

new service to airport

Sounds great, but like everything else, it appears that I would just miss it. If we go this year, it will be the last week in April and I understand that this doesn't begin until 5/5, right?

This idea is phenomenal. I'm looking forward to taking advantage of it when I go in July. Not only does it improve customer satisfcation but it's going to make Disney a pile of money.

Disney's Magical Express is open to anyone staying at Disney hotels in WDW. All you have to do is speak to CRO when booking to let them know times/dates etc. It's even open to DVC members!! (I Know since I've already booked it!!)


Are we there yet?

free is good
after careful consideration & many sleepless nights,
here's what i've decided.
there is no such thing as a grown up.
we move on, we move out,
we move away from our families & form our own.
but the basic insecurities, the basic fears
and all those old wounds just grow up with us.
we get bigger, we get taller, and we get older.
but, for the most part, we're still a bunch of kids
running around the playground,
trying desperately to fit in.

It sounds wonderful, but, unfortunately, I will miss it! Everyone have a fabulous vacation, though!

But, does it also go with the Vacation Club or just the cash resorts?

You might want to ask on the DVC boards.

has anyone heard if this service will be expanded to other on-site resorts, specifically Shades of Green, in the future? I know when they tested the extra hrs at night Shades and I think Swan and Dolphin were not included in the test, but are included now.

Last night I was at a NFFC Chapter Meeting and the guest speaker was the manager for programs for multi-visit guests. She was asked and said that it will work for room-only reservations but the people must be at a Disney owned and operated Resort. It looks like it will not apply to SoG.

Does anyone see this costing Disney a pretty penny, and they will then have to make it up some where else? Or, will this only be a temporary thing during the current 50th anniversary celebration, and then, after the celebration is over, so is the program.... and perhaps the same with the DDE being open to AP holders?
