    I am coming to WDW in 2015 and I am staying at POR, I have never used the magical express and I was wondering what I do and what happens with your luggage etc? Do they deliver to your hotel room, or do you have to wait in until they arrive etc.

    Hi Paul,

    Welcome Home!  You are going to love using Disney's Magical Express.  From the moment I see the motorcoaches waiting outside of Orlando International Airport, the magic begins.  My family looks forward each visit to watching the entertaining videos on Magical Express as we are transported in air conditioned comfort directly to our Resort hotel.

    The above linked page for Magical Express details the steps of transportation for you and your luggage to your Disney Resort hotel.  If you wish for your luggage to be delivered to your room, simply affix your Magical Express luggage tags to each item that you check at the airport before you depart on your flight.  You will not have to retrieve it from baggage claim and your luggage will be delivered within 3 hours of your arrival to your Resort hotel.  Like magic, it will be delivered to your room even if you are not there.

    If your flight arrives before 5 AM or after 10 PM, you should not affix the Magical Express luggage tags and instead pick up your luggage from baggage claim before proceeding to the Magical Express desk at Orlando International Airport.  In this case your luggage will be transported with you in the same motorcoach and given back to you when your motorcoach drops you off at your Resort hotel.

    Thank you for your question Paul.  Should you have any further questions about Magical Express or any other Disney vacation planning topic, please come back and ask them here.  We love to help make your vacation more MAGICAL.
