I was told that Mickey Mouse is at the airport by the magical express service. Is this true? We have not told our kids that we are going to Disney and wanted to wait till they saw Mickey to tell them. My son is 3 and daughter will turn 6 at Disney.

Hmmmm, I've taken the Magical Express a number of times, but I don't recall Mickey ever greeting us at the Magical Express counter or pick up area (although it would be a very cool idea). The first thing your children will see that resembles Disney is a large Disney Store right at the Orlando Terminal. The store has a massive image of Fantasmic Mickey Mouse with the magician's hat on the front window.
Another cool moment is seeing the Walt Disney World entrance sign as you enter Disney premises while the bus is driving. You'll also have TV's in the Express detailing all the fun you'll have while at Disney. So multiple hints sprinkled around that they're on the way to Mickey's World. If your daughter is like mine, they have a "6th sense" when it comes to figuring out surprise vacations, and may guess it well in advance :-)
Have you and family have a magical time!
