    Hi I am arriving with my husband, my 3 year old and 9 months old. We land at 11pm so while we are taking the Magical Express we need to handle our own bags. What do you recommend or what is available to help us with all our bags

    Hi, there!

     Nectar, I'm so thrilled to hear you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones in tow. You're sure to have a magical stay!

     Disney's Magical Express is one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel. This complimentary motorcoach service gets my family quickly and safely from Orlando International Airport to our Resort hotel, making it the perfect way to begin our magical vacations. Since your flight will be arriving too late to take advantage of the luggage delivery service, I have a few suggestions. First, travel with a double stroller. One of the reasons my family always takes our own double stroller with us on our Walt Disney World Resort vacations is that we like to have it with us through the airports. My husband and I know our kids are safe and comfortable in the stroller and with our smallest kiddos seated, it allows one of us to have hands available for managing bags. I also recommend condensing your luggage as much as possible. We manage to pack just one large suitcase for our family of five! I only pack four days worth of outfits for everyone and then do laundry at our Resort hotel mid-week, which saves us from needing another suitcase. Too, we order snacks, diapers, wipes, and other baby necessities from a grocery delivery service, so those items don't need to be packed either! I do pack a personal item, like a backpack, for each person in our family, but my husband can carry his and manage our suitcase at the same time, I can carry mine while pushing the stroller, and the kids' backpacks can be stowed underneath the stroller. 

     I hope this was helpful, Nectar. If you have any other questions, please let me know!
