Disney Magical Express new look for 2018
Posted: Tuesday September 4, 2018 9:33am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The new-look Magical Express motorcoaches are now in service at Walt Disney World.

The portal design from the Disney Cruise Line features heavily, and characters include Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie, Donald and Daisy.

Along with the new look, the name also changes to Disney Magical Express rather than Disney's Magical Express.

Disney's Magical Express launched in May 2005 and offers complimentary Orlando International Airport shuttle, luggage delivery and airline check in for Disney hotel guests.

I just wish that they would bring back the older video. Even though it had Stitch, the narrator's voice was calming and the "storyline" was enjoyable. I liked how they worked in the various characters (ex. Capt. Hook looking for Peter Pan). The new video just doesn't appeal to me that much.

I was on one this weekend and it was definitely a new bus. They did a nice job of moving the monitors so they're more in line with the roof, and not hanging down. Feels like there's more head room.

I was just on one today and the inside did not look new.

Sure! We'll eat at Cinderella's Royal Feast (wait, they use an apostrophe on that one) and then ride Prince Charming Royal Carousel (where they don't use one).

I too am confused as to whether or not the buses are new as well, or if it's just the wrapper that has changed

I'll guard the flanks over at It's A Small World...

There must be a petition somewhere to send him back on patrol. Too bad there's no more Adventurers Club to banish him to....:confused:

I say we fight for the possessive and start using apostrophe's any and everywhere until Disney relents and restores it (where appropriate). Disney's will's not's like's this's. (Gah, my head hurts just trying to type and read that...)

So the livery says "Disney Magical Express" but the video still says "Disney's Magical Express"...

Did they just wrap the old ones or are these brand new buses?

I like the different DCL bus livery. I like to feel entitled when we cruise. ;)

Actually, If it comes from Disney... It was "Due to Guest Demand" :D Side note, I wonder if this will bring a new DME video?
