Top Three Reasons to
Stay On-Site at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel:
Disney’s Magical Express
– When guests bound for Disney owned-and-operated hotels are traveling
via commercial airline to Orlando International Airport (MCO), they
can arrange for special luggage tags that allow them to check their
bags at their hometown airport, bypass baggage claim at OIA and board
state-of-the-art motor coaches for complimentary transportation to the
Vacation Kingdom, where their bags “magically” appear in their guestroom.
When it’s time to say good-bye, guests board motor coaches for complimentary
transportation back to Orlando International Airport - (MCO). An extra
convenience: Guests traveling on participating airlines can check their
baggage for the return flight at their Disney resort, saving time and
luggage-toting at the airport.
Walt Disney World Transportation
System – A Walt Disney World resort ID is the ticket for buses,
monorails and boat launches that combine to connect virtually all areas
of the Vacation Kingdom. With the convenience of “door-to-door” service
throughout the resort, many guests enjoy their Walt Disney World vacation
without a car.
Extra Magic Hours at Walt Disney
World Theme Parks – Each day, Disney hotel guests are offered exclusive
time in a Walt Disney World theme park one hour prior to scheduled park
opening or for up to three hours after park closing. The park varies
from day to day. In addition, Disney water parks sometimes open one

time in the parks, guests must have their hotel ID plus a Magic Your
Way ticket valid for the park(s) offering Extra Magic Hours. (NOTE:
Extra Magic Hours of up to two hours after park close take effect in
