Disney's Magical Express

    We bought our trip on short notice. We did not have time to have luggage tags sent. I'm assuming I would have to get it from baggage claim and bring to the resort myself. Is there enough time to get to baggage claim and make it to the magical Express?

    Hi Tracey! Welcome to planDisney!

    What a fun spontaneous adventure you are about to begin in just TWO days! I've scheduled a few last-minute visits to the Most Magical Place on Earth and some of my favorite memories have happened on those trips. I would hop on a plane and head to the Walt Disney World Resort tomorrow if I could!

    I have good news for you! There is no need to worry about luggage tags. Since the Walt Disney World Resort reopened last year, Disney's Magical Express stopped sending out luggage tags because they are no longer offering luggage delivery directly to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room from Orlando International Airport. All Guests are required to head to the baggage claim area to retrieve their checked bags before heading to the check-in podium for Disney's Magical Express.

    This complimentary transportation that will continue to operate until December 31, 2021, is continuous, so no need to try to be there at a certain time. Once you check-in with a Cast Member, they will let you know which line to stand in, then, you'll simply wait for the next bus for your resort to arrive. The bus driver will place your luggage under the bus while you ride the same bus. The driver will give you your bags again when you arrive at your destination. Although it is not required, I always keep a little cash with me to tip the driver. I know they appreciate it!

    I hope you enjoy every moment of your vacation, Tracey! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
