    How exactly does Magical Express work? Will there be luggage tags that we will receive prior to boarding our flight down? Do we need to collect our bags at baggage claim or will that be taken care of by a Cast Member?

    Hi Kevin,

    Thanks so much for the great question.  Magical Express is just that... MAGICAL.  This amazing service was designed to take the hassle of out your travel and this starts before you even leave home.  A few weeks before your check-in date, you will receive a packet from Disney's Magical Express and this will contain your transportation vouchers and your yellow luggage tags. Simply affix these adhesive tags to the checked luggage for each member of your party.  When you cheek your bags in at your local airport, wave goodbye because you won't see them again until they magically appear in your resort hotel room shortly after your arrival!

    When you arrive at the Orlando International Airport, just follow the signs for Disney's Magical Express.  You won't be able to miss the check in area... just look for the giant waving Mickey hands and you'll know you've made it to the right place!  No need to retrieve your own luggage, as I mentioned earlier, it will magically arrive in a few hours.  

    Tip:  Pack any necessary items that you may need immediately upon arrival into your carry-ons.  For me this is usually bathing suits and goggles.

    Best wishes,

    Amanda F.
