    My daughter is dancing at Disney in June. We want to come in 2 days earlier. How do we get our luggage from one resort to the other & have Magical Express pick us up at the other resort? How do we connect our bands for the 2 reservations?

    Hi Sue!

    Congratulations on your little Disney Dancer! What a fun reason to visit Walt Disney World Resort. I'm happy you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and excited to answer your question. First, you'll need to make sure both reservations are connected to your My Disney Experience account. Once that's complete, scheduling Disney's Magical Express, switching resorts and using your MagicBands is easy!

    To arrange Disney's Magical Express you'll want to call the number in link I provided. Simply tell them you'd like to be dropped off to the first resort and will need pick-up from a different resort. We often do split-stays on our vacations, so this won't be a problem.

    The night before you check out from the first resort you'll want to call Bell Services and let them know you will be transferring resorts. They'll schedule a pick-up time to come get your bags and deliver them to the second resort. Remember, this can take several hours so keep everything you may need for the day with you. Once you check-in and have received your room at the new resort, call Bell Services there to find out if your luggage has been delivered and they'll bring it to your room for you. Disney makes it super simple!

    As far as your MagicBands, they are connected to your My Disney Experience account and therefor will be "attached" to any reservations and plans you have in your account. Occasionally, the Front Desk has had to "reset" our bands to open the door at the second resort, but it's a quick and easy step. I'd just mention you have just transferred resorts at check-in to make sure they check before you head to your room. 

    Please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with, Sue! 

    Magical Wishes,
