    Hi Nicole!

    If you have tagged your luggage with your yellow Magical Express tags, Disney will transfer your luggage to your resort for you. Once you arrive in Orlando, you can skip baggage claim and go straight to the Magical Express counter and check-in.

    When your vacation is over and you head back to the airport, you will need to bring your luggage with you. Your Magical Express driver will store your bags under the bus and will unload them for you at the airport. Here, you will have to check-in at the Southwest counter before going through security.

    Some airlines participate in a resort check-in, but unfortunately Southwest is not currently one of these airlines.
