Welcome Home – My 2nd Home at Disney
with Magical Mickey Tips

“Disney was never a vacation destination for my husband or his family, he was very reluctant to spend a week at an “amusement park”. I grew up visiting the parks yearly. I was lucky enough to have grandparents in nearby Cocoa Beach, Florida. Find out why my husband now calls Disney his 2nd home.” – Patricia

Disney's Polynesian Village & Bungalows

grand-opened the newest resort in the DVC family – Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. The dedication ceremony featured a Samoan fire-knife dancer, Polynesian drummers and torch-bearers representing the three points of the Polynesian Triangle. The three torches lit a fourth torch in officially opening the newest lodging, part of an overall re-imagination of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

The Bungalows also have two full bathrooms, a kitchen, washer and dryer, and dining and living room spaces for gatherings. The newest Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows features 20 Bungalows on Seven Seas Lagoon, the first of this type of accommodation for Disney, and when complete this summer, 360 Deluxe Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

You Have Arrived! MCO and Magical Express

Magical Express

How Disney’s Magical Express service works:

  • Disney’s Magical Express must be booked at least 10 days prior to arrival through disneyworld.com, Disney Reservation Center by calling 407-W-DISNEY, or a travel agent.
  • Guests check their specially tagged luggage at their departure airport.
  • Upon arrival in Orlando, guests bypass airport baggage claim and go directly to the Disney Airport Welcome Center.
  • Guests board state-of-the-art motor coaches that take them to their Disney hotel.
  • Disney representatives at the airport pick up guests’ luggage and transport it to their hotel room.
