    when we arrive the airport, just hop to the disney bus, they will handle all the luggage... we can go to the park right away, or we have to ck in the hotel? it is convenient to take the shuttle bus around? do we need to wait for a long time? thanks so much

    Hi Rachel,

    Disney's Magical Express will take you from Orlando International Airport to your resort.  You are correct that if you chose to, Disney will pick up your luggage and deliver it to your resort, allowing you to bypass baggage claim and start your vacation even sooner!  Once you arrive at the resort, I strongly recommend checking in, so that you can receive your room keys (on which you can add charging privileges) and park tickets (if you've booked a package).  Then you'll be all set to take Disney transportation to the park of your choice and start your vacation!  (The buses that take you to the parks are different than those run by Magical Express.)  In general, you can expect to wait 15-20 minutes for a bus to the park of your choice.  (This may vary if you've just missed a bus, or if it's been a few minutes since one stopped by, etc.)  My family and I have long felt that Disney transportation is very convenient, and the best way to navigate the parks.

    Have a wonderful time!
