    How to add the magical express transportation?

    Hi Danielle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you so much for reaching out to us hEAR with this great planning question for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Of all of the 'included perks' that come with staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, Disney's Magical Express really is top of the list for me. I like saving on the expense of not having to rent a vehicle, but even more so I LOVE that I can leave the driving to someone else so I won't get lost! There are currently two ways to schedule Disney's Magical Express: either have your flight information handy when you make your hotel room or vacation package reservation either over the phone or online. Or, you can call back and add your flight info to your reservation any time before your day of flight. The phone number is (407) 939-1936, and if you go this route be sure to have both your flight info and your Disney reservation confirmation number ready to go.

    While adding your flight info can wait, if you're planning on utilizing the complimentary Luggage Delivery portion of this service, where your checked bags are picked up at the airport and delivered to your Disney Resort Hotel Room, do plan to add your flight information at least one month before your check-in day so you'll receive the all-important bag tags. Then, when you do arrive at Orlando's International Airport, all you'll have to do is step off the plane, scan your MagicBand at the Magical Express Check-In area, and you'll be on your way!

    Pro Tip: Did you know that you're welcome to start enjoying everything that your Disney Resort Hotel has to offer the moment you arrive, even if your room isn't quite ready yet? This includes your Disney Dining Plan to have your first Mickey meal or activate your Resort Hotel Refillable Beverage Mug. Feel free to hop aboard Disney Resort Transportation to check out Disney Springs or even a neighboring Resort Hotel if you're staying at a hotel with Water Transportation options, that's on the Resort Monorail line, or has direct access to the Disney Skyliner.  I definitely recommend utilizing Online Resort Check-In which helps pair your party up with a room that will be ready around your arrival time. But just in case there is a bit of a wait, you're more than welcome to enjoy the pool too, so don't forget to bring your swim stuff in your carry-on!

    I hope this helped to plan your upcoming Disney Days, Danielle, and if you have any more Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
