    If we arrive the day before our booked resort stay, can we still use the Magical Express. We would be going to a different Disney resort staying with family for the night before going to our resort the next day.

    Hi Linda! 

    Your vacation sounds practically perfect in every way! I'm so excited you are getting a bonus night with your family!

    Disney's Magical Express will only pick up from the airport on the day of check-in. Unfortunately, they will not do a day earlier. However, because you are checking in a day earlier at a different Resort hotel, you will need your family to modify their reservation to include you. Once you are listed on the reservation, you can call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936 to add Disney's Magical Express to your reservation.

    When you call in, be sure you have both your flight information and Walt Disney World Resort reservation number readily available.

    On the day of your transfer, you can simply pack your bags and call Luggage Assistance/Bell Services. Let them know you are transferring to a different Resort hotel. When it's time for you to depart, a Cast Member will count your bags with you, and will give you a claim check. Then, you are free to go enjoy your day! Be sure you keep anything with you that you will need throughout the day because it will take a few hours for your luggage to be delivered to your new Resort hotel.

    You will want to take advantage of online check-in so you will be notified when your room is available. When you arrive at your second Resort hotel, simply contact Luggage Assistance/Bell Services and give them your baggage claim number. Based on personal experience, you might want to take a picture of your baggage claim number so you have it easily available on your mobile device when you need it.

    I'm so excited for you!! I know you will enjoy both of your Resort hotels!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
