May 5, 2005 – Disney’s Magical Express Service Begins at Walt Disney World


“Be magically whisked away!”

On May 5, 2005, the special service Disney’s Magical Express began running in Walt Disney World. The complimentary motorcoach picks up guests and their luggage at Orlando International Airport and takes them to their hotels on the Disney property. Guests can sign up for the service when they book their vacation package. A perk of this package allows to skip baggage claim by attaching special tags on their bags; their bags are then claimed by Disney representatives and are taken directly to guests rooms. The service also gives guests a complimentary ride back to the airport at the end of their Disney vacation.
