    We are arriving in Orlando on April 12th and staying outside Disney property. On the 13th, we are taking the Maigcal Express and checking in. Do we have to claim our luggage on the 12th? Or can Disney hold it at WL where we will be checking in? Thanks!

    Hi Anne!

    If your Disney Resort check-in and "fly-in" dates differ, I'd definitely recommend that you claim your own luggage from the carousels on the 12th after you land. In this case, you won't want to affix the bright yellow luggage tags to your suitcases before leaving home. Simply bring your Magical Express booklet along with you, which contains your motor coach transportation vouchers.

    After claiming your suitcases and enjoying your outside, overnight stay, simply head to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center at Orlando International Airport on April 13th, with your luggage in tow. You'll find the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center on Level 1, B Side of the airport's Main Terminal Building.

    A Cast Member will direct you, and your luggage, to your Motor Coach. Your luggage will be stowed beneath the motor coach and will arrive with you at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort. If your resort room is not yet ready for you at the time you arrive, your luggage can indeed be stored by the Bell Services staff, and delivered to your room once it's all set for you. You'll be able to head off right away, straight into the magic!

    You're going to absolutely LOVE Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort. I just stayed there in June and it very quickly jumped to being among the top of my list of favourite resorts! It's just so beautiful and serene. We loved being able to take the boat to Magic Kingdom.

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel with your great question Anne.
    I hope you'll write me back again soon with more great questions. I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
