    Sad Death involving Disney Magical Express transportation

    Florida Highway Patrol has confirmed that an accident occured just after 4pm EST involving Disney's Magical Express and another vehicle that led to one fatality and several injuries. The accident took place on Epcot Center Drive and was also confirmed by Disney officials.

    A 60 year old woman in the car that collided with the bus was transported to Celebration hospital and later died there. Two other people that were riding Disney's Magical Express, including one child, were sent to the hospital in a non-emergencey, precautionary measure. Nobody on the buss was harmed

    Right now it appears that Epcot Center Drive is totally shut down near Overpass Road.

    The Mears Transportation-owned and operated Disney's Magical express is separate from the inter-resort bus transportation system. Magical express is a service that drives guest from Orlando International Airport to the various resorts on Walt Disney Property.
