Since the boarding areas are all inside the security check points, there is no need to for guests to repeat the security check point process. Express Transportation ticket can be purchased at any ticket booth, resort Guest Services location, or directly from the Express Transportation Check In desk at each park. The Magic Kingdom Express Transportation desk is located near the exit of Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, the Epcot location is near the east side of Spaceship Earth, the Hollywood Studios location is in the courtyard in front of Rock 'N' Roller Coaster, and the Animal Kingdom location is near the entrance to Kilimanjaro Safaris.
