    We are coming to Disney in April and plan on using the Disney Magical Express Transportation. Can we retrieve our own luggage at baggage claim and take to the bus so that we have our luggage with us when we arrive at the hotel?

    Hi, there!

     Sharon, I'm so excited to hear you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort this Spring. Magic will be blooming all around you!

     I just love Disney's Magical Express. When my family flies into Orlando from Pennsylvania, this complimentary motorcoach service is there to whisk us away to our Disney Resort hotel. It's just one of the many benefits that Guests can enjoy during their stay! With three kids, my husband and I appreciate that Disney's Magical Express will take care of picking up and delivering our suitcases right to our room. You'll be pleased to know, though, that you're most welcome to gather your own bags and take them on the motorcoach with you! It can sometimes take a few hours for your luggage to be delivered, so grabbing it yourself before leaving the airport certainly ensures you'll have it in your room as soon as you arrive to your Resort hotel! When you land, simply head to baggage claim to collect your luggage. Once you've got everything, go directly to Disney's Magical Express in the Ground Transportation Area, Side B, Level 1. (Don't worry about not finding it. There's lots of helpful signage in the airport!) You'll be assigned a motorcoach and your driver will happily stow your luggage underneath. I recommend having some small bills on hand. We like to tip our driver $1 per bag handled. Of course, tipping is not required, but I'm sure it's very much appreciated. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sharon. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I'd love to help you plan a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
