    It's me & my boyfriend's first trip to WDW and flying out of state in general. We're having Disney transport pick us up from the airport, but our flight time recently changed to a later time. Does the time change affect the transportation?

    Hi Nicole!! Your FIRST trip to Walt Disney World Resort is a few short weeks away!! Yippee! I'm so excited for you!!!

    Disney's Magical Express makes my heart happy! When I first tap my MagicBand at the Disney's Magical Express check-in, I know my Walt Disney World Resort vacation has started!!

    The change in flight time is not a problem at all. The only potential difference might be how you handle your checked luggage. If your flight will arrive after 10:00 PM, you will need to claim your checked bags and then make your way to Disney’s Magical Express (located in the Ground Transportation Area in Terminal B, Level 1). From there, the friendly Cast Members will direct you to your motorcoach. Your luggage will be stowed on your motorcoach as you are whisked away on Disney's Magical Express. Your stowed items will be returned to you once you arrive at your Resort hotel. As you are packing your items, be sure to keep your MagicBands readily available as they will be needed when you check-in at Disney's Magical Express.

    If you are arriving prior to 10:00 PM, you have the option to have your luggage transported separately and delivered directly to your room. Be sure you keep any medications, must have items, and valuables with you as it may take up to three hours for your luggage to arrive at your Resort hotel.

    Oh my goodness! I'm so excited for you! I love Disney's Magical Express! It's the perfect way to start your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
