    Okay, so I'm looking to book a flight really soon for my January trip. I'm not sure what flight to book for our trip back. We won't be able to go to parks that day, but I would like some flexibility time in case we decide to go to the gift shop, take some pictures, or at the very least, have a relaxing morning. So basically, I'm wondering how early the Magical Express will usually pick up people from hotels. 2 hours before the flight? 3 hours before the flight?

    Thanks for your help!

    Approx 3 hours before your flight time.

    They will tell you the day before if you take advantage of the service..

    And you must be there at least 15minutes before the time they tell you, otherwise you risk not getting on the bus.

    Take it from me, I read the information wrong and they would not let us on. Luckily it was very early in the morning and another bus came by soon enough.

    They pick you up 4 hours before your flight if you are on an international flight.

    You wer very lucky. You are not guaranteed passage on any DME bus back to the airport other than your assigned bus. For example the next bus may be fully booked.

    If you leave the resort, you should shoot to be back an hour before your bus time back to the airport if you are riding Disney park buses.

    They wanted to pick us up so early, we took a cab instead. It wasn't worth it to us.

    We also didn't care for ME getting to the resort. Took way over and hour and a half longer than a towncar. Just our opinion.
