    Can our checked bags ride the magical express even if we don't? We are arriving late afternoon, and want to get to MVMCP asap, so we plan on taking an Uber, but we don't want to wait for our luggage.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Arriving at Orlando International Airport is the first step of my vacation and I can hardly wait to get to one of the theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort. I can absolutely relate to wanting to race to the magic. 
    Disney's Magical Express is a transportation service with the added benefit of luggage delivery. They will scan your MagicBand when you arrive at Disney's Magical Express and again just before you board the motorcoach to verify you have arrived and are on your way to your Resort Hotel. At this time, you must use the transportation service to have your luggage delivered. 
    On a previous visit, a friend and I were arriving at the airport at almost the same time. One of us only had a carry-on and took an Uber or Lyft and the other took Disney's Magical Express. We arrived at the Resort Hotel at the exact same time. I know you will still have to make your way to Magic Kingdom Park for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party but Disney's Magical Express might be quicker than you realize. 
    Kimberly, thank you for visiting us again. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you a magical and merry vacation,
    Amy H.
