10 BIG Decisions You Must Make When Planning Your Walt Disney World Trip

Magical Express

3. How to Travel

If you’re into road trips and can afford the time your journey will take, driving often tends to be the most economical option, especially for large families. However, Orlando is known as a major travel destination, so many airlines price tickets very competitively as a result. If you can pack light and avoid the baggage fees, flying could end up being worth your while. Disney runs a Magical Express shuttle that makes transfer to your on-property hotel painless. Be aware though that it could take up to three hours for your luggage to arrive at your room. (Put your Magic Bands and swimsuits in your carry-on!) Most off-property hotels near Disney have easy airport shuttles as well.
