    We are 9 days out from our vacation. I just realized we did not book Disney’s magical Express. Can we make reservations now or is it too late?

    Hello Miranda!

    Unlike the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, you are not too late! You can still add Disney’s Magical Express service for transportation between Orlando International Airport and your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. I think Disney’s Magical Express is one of the best perks of staying on-property. For my family, it is a huge savings to not have to rent a car on our vacations! At home, I joke that I AM Disney’s Magical Express since I spend most of my time driving my kiddos all over town, and so I enjoy leaving the driving to Mickey when on vacation.

    Because your trip is just around the corner, there may not be enough time for you to receive the yellow luggage tags needed for Disney to pick up your luggage at baggage claim. I would call Disney’s Magical Express as soon as possible to set up your arrangements and they will try to send your luggage tags in time. If you don’t receive them before your trip, you have two options. You are welcome to pick up your luggage yourself at baggage claim and take it on Disney’s Magical Express with you. Alternately, you can visit the Magical Express Desk with your luggage claim tickets, and they should still be able to pick up and transport your luggage for you! Remember it can take several hours for your bags to magically appear in your room. I always pack anything I'll need for the first part of our day, including our MagicBands, in my carry-on.

    I hope this helps, Miranda. Happy packing and I hope you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
