    I was curious if the Magical Express would drop off at Epcot prior to Port Orleans. Since I am flying in at 9:00 I thought about just going to Epcot and renting a locker for our carry on luggage, then enjoying the park, rather than going to the hotel first then going to the park.

    I just wanted to see if Disney does this or if other people have done this as well.

    And I think they will only drop you off at the hotel where you have your reservations. The DME reservation is tied into your resort confirmation, so unless you're lucky enough to be on the same route/bus as where you want to go, you're going to that one.

    This is correct. Once you get to the DME area at MCO they scan your magic band and direct you to the bus that lines up with your reservation/hotel.

    I guess one thought would be if you wanted to check with the DME in advance you can see if you can take a DME bus to the boardwalk or yacht and beach club and walk over from there. By the time you rent a locker it may be about the same price to just drop your bags at your actual hotel and take a uber/taxi to the park.

    Thank you, I am trying to plan accordingly because I arrive at 9:30 at the airport and have a 12:15 lunch reservation in Epcot, so I am trying to figure out the best plan for that.
