    Can you book the magical express and check luggage but take a different form of transportation (like the lyft vans) to a park instead of going to your hotel first? Will they still bring your luggage to the hotel if you don't check in or get on the bus?

    Hi Faustine,

    What a great question! In fact, I had the very same question just a few months ago. Last October, I flew into Orlando International Airport with little time to spare to arrive at an important gathering of my Disney Parks Moms Panel friends. I didn't have time to check in at my Walt Disney World Resort hotel before heading over to Disney's Hollywood Studios and I couldn't take my luggage with me to the theme park. In this instance, Disney's Magical Express really saved the day! Because I had put the luggage tag for Disney's Magical Express on my suitcase prior to checking it at my home airport, my bags were transported directly from Orlando International Airport to my hotel room. Meanwhile, I took a car service to Disney's Hollywood Studios. It worked wonderfully well.

    The key, of course, to this plan working is putting those official Disney's Magical Express luggage tags on your suitcases prior to checking them at your home airport. If the luggage tags are not attached, your bags will circle the baggage carousel endlessly. You would need to go back to the airport and claim them at some later point. And I'm sure you don't want that to happen. 

    Let us know if you have any additional questions with which we may assist you. Your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be here before you know it!
