1. You can take the bus one-way
If for whatever reason you only need to take Disney’s Magical Express one way, you are totally able to do so. You can add it to your reservation for one way only, or if you change your plans, simply let a Disney cast member know. Although the bus will not wait for you, and attendance is not taken to board the bus, letting a cast member know if you will not need it both ways is a courtesy to other guests who may be needing room on the bus during that time. (This is particularly helpful during peak weeks at the Walt Disney World Resort, like 4th of July and Christmas weeks when more guests than usual are planning on taking Disney’s Magical Express).
