This is an important update if you plan on flying to Walt Disney World this holiday season. As of November 17th, Disney’s Magical Express will now pick up guests from their resort 4 hours prior to their scheduled departure flights. Previously, the pick up time was three hours prior to scheduled departure flights.
This can definitely add a few kinks to departure days if guest have plans to visit a park or so some shopping, so please make your changes ahead of time!
The change could be temporary, as Disney plans to re-evaluate pick up times in January. The updated pickup time is in response to increased TSA security procedures. If the new TSA procedures remain after the busy travel season, it is likely that Disney will keep the changes to their Magical Express pickup times, as well.
We will keep you updated on any more updates to Disney’s Magical Express!
