    Does anyone know roughly how much it would cost to take a cab from MCO to Ft. Wilderness? :confused3 My brother is going to try to fly in but won't know until the very last minute if he can. It makes it hard to reserve something....looking for the cheapest method of getting him to us. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!

    Can't he use the Magical Express? Afterall, he's flying into the Orlando airport and traveling to a Disney resort? It's definitely the cheapest -- free!!

    Thank you for your answers!!
    I'm not sure how magical express works. I thought it was something additional you had to buy. The rest of the family is driving (we are FL residents) and he is the only one needing transportation. The hard thing about figuring out what to do is not knowing if he is going to be able to make it or not. He literally wont know until the last minute so I'm afraid to look into reserving anything. If magical express is something he can just show up for, and present he is on a reservation, then that would definitly work! I didn't think that was the case however. Does anyone know? :thanks:

    Disney's Magical Express is free to any Disney resort guest. Flying into the Orlando Airport and staying at WDW resort -- such as Fort Wilderness -- entitles a guest to this service.

    I would suggest that he (or you) go ahead and makes a reservation for him for the day and flight he may be taking. That way a spot is reserved for him on one of the Magical Express buses. If the reservation is made far enough in advance, he may also be able to receive the Magical Express luggage tags which he would place on his checked luggage at his home airport and then when he arrives in Orlando, he would just have to check in at the Magical Express desk where he will be directed to a line to wait for the next scheduled bus to take him to Fort Wilderness. If he doesn't receive the tags in time, no problem, he can describe his luggage to the Cast Member at the Magical Express desk and they will have someone bring his luggage to Fort Wilderness. He can, of course, always pick up his own luggage from the luggage carousel and take it with him to the Magical Express check-in desk and then it will be placed under the bus and brought with him to Fort Wilderness.

    Resort Guests should contact Disney's Magical Express Guest Services at 866-599-0951. And they should be able to answer all your questions.

    Here is a link from Allearsnet.com which explains, in great detail, all about Disney's Magical Express --

    If for some reason, he is unable to join you, no worries. You (or he) can call and cancel his reservation. And if a cancellation is not made, don't stress over it. They won't charge you for a "no show."


    Hope this helps and it definitely should save you a ton of money over a cab fare. :cool1:

    Thank you SO much! I never knew magical express was a free service. I called up Disney already and they told me I need his flight number so as soon as I get that I'll be making his reservation. Free is great! Thank you guys so very much! :thanks::disrocks:
