    Hi, . We have a direct a.m. flight from Halifax Canada to Orlando . When we put the suitcases on the plane in Halifax with the Disney yellow tags is there any need to collect them in Orlando or will they be taken directly to the resort by Disney staff.

    Hi Charlene!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope that you are getting excited about your upcoming stay!
    One of the reasons that my family keeps coming back over and over to the Walt Disney World Resort is that they have thought of so many ways to make vacationing easy. It seems to start even before you leave your home with those yellow Disney’s Magical Express Luggage Tags.

    You should receive your luggage tags, as well as additional details about Disney’s Magical Express. Before checking your bags at your home airport, you should attach the luggage tags to your luggage. If you are scheduled to arrive at the Orlando International Airport between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM, you won’t have to retrieve your luggage from the luggage carousel. Simply head to the Disney’s Magical Express motorcoach area, which is located in the Ground Transportation Area in Terminal B, Level 1. Make sure to have either your MagicBands or your Disney’s Magical Express documents as you will need this to board the motorcoach. You can view and print out a map of Orlando International Airport so that you can easily find the location of Disney’s Magical Express before you even leave your home. Once you check-in and board the motorcoach, sit back and enjoy the ride as they whisk you away to the most magical place on earth!

    I do recommend that if you plan to take advantage of the complimentary luggage service, that you pack a carry-on bag. Since your luggage does travel separately to your Disney Resort hotel, it may arrive up to three hours after you. We typically pack a full change of clothes, a bathing suit, sunscreen, and a pair of flip flops to use at the pool. I also like to throw in a pair of pajamas and a toothbrush just in case!  

    I hope that you have a fantastic vacation! Sit back, relax, and let Disney take care of the rest!
