    Hi again! We are actually using ME this trip without having to collect our own bags! Do we pre register or just go to the desk at arrival? Arriving 130pm, is there usually long waits for buses? Are we allowed to bring carry ons on the bus?

    Hi there Laura!

    You're going to LOVE how simple and speedy it is to head straight off to your Walt Disney World Resort via the Magical Express coach! Your luggage 'magically' appearing in your resort room later that day is one of the most wonderful perks!

    If you've already added your flight information to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package at the time of your booking, or by calling back in at (407) 939-7675, then there's no need to do anything else after you've arrived.

    Simply head straight to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center in the Main Terminal Building, B Side, Level 1, and pass the desk - heading straight for the queues for the motor coaches. You'll want to have your Magical Express Booklet handy so that the Cast Member there can scan your vouchers. Midday does tend to be a busier time of day, so you may encounter a short wait for your bus. I often arrive around that time and have never waited longer than 20-30 minutes to be on board and on our way!

    Larger carry-ons that you don't need to access during the 30-45 minute ride will be safely stowed beneath the motor coach in compartments by resort. Smaller handbags and carry-ons may indeed be taken on board the motor coach with you if you wish.

    You'll receive your Magical Express luggage stickers and motor coach vouchers in a separate package about 20-30 days prior to the start of your vacation. If you reach 14 days and haven't yet received them, call Disney's Magical Express directly at 1-866-599-0951. 

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question Laura. I hope you'll write back again soon.
    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
