    Are the Disney luggage tags shipped internationally? Also, is there an option on the Magical Express for your luggage to arrive at the same time as you, or does it have to be delivered separately within the 3 hour time-frame after check-in? Thanks!

    Hi Jen,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question. Disney’s Magical Express is so convenient, and a great way for the Disney magic to begin as soon as you step off your airplane.

    The luggage tags for Disney’s Magical Express ship to the United States and Canada, but not to other international locations. But never fear! You will be able to use Disney’s Magical Express even without those magical luggage tags as long as you have your resort confirmation number and/or MagicBand. My last trip to Walt Disney World was booked at the last minute, without time to mail the Magical Express tags. I brought my baggage claim number to the Cast Members at the Magical Express check-in, and they were able to connect that number to my reservation, collect my bag, and send it along to my room.

    If you don’t want to wait for your bags to arrive in your room, you do have the option of claiming your own bags at the baggage claim and bringing them with you to the Magical Express. They will then travel with you on the motorcoach. I always make sure I have some cash with me so I can tip my friendly driver for handling my bags; tips are not mandatory, but they do seem to be appreciated!

    Jen, I found this information on international flights to be a really helpful explanation of the process. Please come back and visit us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any more questions!

    Wishing you safe travels and a magical vacation,
