    We have booked a trip to WDW in March, but are going to a wedding before WDW. If we rent a car at the airport and return it to the Orlando airport after the wedding, can we still catch the Disney airport shuttle even though our flight was days before?

    Hi, Kristina! Yes, you can, but there are some rules you must follow.  You MUST have a Walt Disney World Resort reservation indicating that your check-in date is the EXACT date you will be using the Magical Express service.  You would be unable to use the Magical Express if your check-in date differs from the date you want to ride.  Do NOT put any of the Magical Express baggage tags or stickers on your luggage. Bags with the Magical Express luggage tags will be collected, and you wouldn't be able to access them until you arrive at your Resort.  There could be confusion at your Resort if your luggage arrives before you do.  You will not want to take any chances with this happening, so claim your bags yourself from the baggage claim area on the day you arrive.  Without the tags, Magical Express will not collect your luggage, so you'll need to go to baggage claim to have it with you before the wedding.  When you arrive the day you are to check-in at Walt Disney World, go to the Guest Services counter for Magical Express at the airport.  They will further assist you in getting on the bus and on your way.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
