    Dear Allison, We are arriving at Polynesian Saturday, Feb. 23. I have already received the luggage tags for our bags, and have already selected the Magical transportation option, but do not understand exactly how this works.


    Wow, your vacation is almost here! How exciting. You will love the Polynesian Resort. The theming is fantastic and it is so convenient to the Magic Kingdom via monorail, so you have chosen wisely.

    The Magical Express airline transportation is a wonderful benefit that you should make your arrival into Orlando hassle-free. Be sure to attach your yellow luggage tags to those pieces of luggage that you are checking. Once you check your bags at the airport you are departing from, you won't see them again until after you check-in to your resort hotel. Keep in mind that this luggage may not be delivered to your resort until several hours after you have checked in. So, if you have anything that you will need upon check-in, keep those items with you in your carry-ons. This checked baggage, although it may arrive at the resort after you, will be delivered directly to your room. There is one exception, if your flight arrives after 10pm, you will need to retrieve your checked baggage before heading to the Magical Express. 

    When you arrive in Orlando, proceed from the gate to the airport tram that will take you to the main terminal. You will then go to the "B" side of the terminal and make your way to Level 1. This airport is very well marked and user friendly, in my opinion. Once you are on the first level, follow the signs to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center. Have your Magical Express vouchers (they should have arrived with your bag tags) handy and a cast member will direct you to the appropriate line for your resort. Then, you are on your way to your magical destination at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I hope this clarified the process for you. May your vacation dreams come true and your expectations for fun be exceeded.
