    Hello again! I have a question about Magical Express. I've heard that using Magical Express can be a pain. Is this true? What I heard is that your luggage takes hours to get to the resort after you arrive. Could someone help clarify the process?

    Hi Whitney,

    I think you may find a number of my fellow Moms who prefer to rent a car. They like the convenience of grabbing their luggage and rental car at the airport and not having to rely on other transportation during their stay. I am not one of those Moms. We LOVE Magical Express!

    We use Magical Express anytime we fly into Orlando and have always found it to be dependable, convenient and reliable. The buses run continuously throughout the day and we have never waited longer than about fifteen or twenty minutes to leave the airport. The check in process is quick and easy to follow and there are plenty of Cast Members to answer any questions you may have.

    Where I love the ease and convenience of no driving, my kids love the comfortable buses and the cool Welcome and Goodbye video from Mickey and his pals. It is the perfect way to start and end our Disney trips.

    If you choose to tag your luggage with Magical Express tickets, there is no worry of waiting at baggage claim or dragging your bags to your resort. Magical Express will pick up your bags, deliver them to your resort and place them right in your resort room for you. The luggage is delivered approximately three hours after your arrival. We have never had a problem with the wait as often we arrive early and need to wait for our room anyway. We simply pack a small travel bag with anything we might need immediately upon arriving on property and start our fun. If you prefer to have your bags immediately, DO NOT tag your bags with the Magical Express tickets and simply pick them up at baggage claim upon your arrival. You are free to bring them with you on the Magical Express bus if you would like.

    I think you will be very happy with the service and love the  ease and even better the cost (free!) of the service. have a great time.
