    If we have booked through a travel agent do they book us onto the magical Express? Or do we need to book ourselves. Also how long does luggage take to arrive from the magical Express?

    Hi, Stacy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. The ride my daughters anticipate the most during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations is aboard Disney's Magical Express because they know it means that their magical adventure has begun! Disney's Magical Express is such a fantastic benefit for guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. This complimentary service can transport you to and from the Orlando International Airport, making your arrival and departure days super easy.

    To book space for your family on a Disney's Magical Express motorcoach, you will need to speak with the travel agent who booked your visit. They may have already done this, if either you previously provided them with your flight information or if they booked your flights for you. However, it never hurts to ask, so I would be sure to check with them. Be sure to have your flight information handy when you talk with them, just in case they do need it.

    Once you land at Orlando International Airport, you have the option of claiming your luggage and taking it with you on the motorcoach or allowing Disney's Magical Express to handle the luggage transfer for you. To hand that luggage detail over to the experts, simply provide your airline baggage claim numbers as you check-in at the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Centre. In my experience, it usually takes around four hours for our luggage to arrive at our Disney Resort Hotel. If you have a late flight, then I highly recommend that you take your luggage with you on the motorcoach so you can easily access must-have nighttime necessities.

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
