    My family & I are are going to Disney for the first time Halloween week. I am really confused about the Magical Express to PORS. How does it work? Is it better to get your luggage at airport or have them pick up your luggage for you? Which is preferred

    Hi Donna!

          Congratulations on your first Walt Disney World vacation that is coming up soon!  I love using Disney's Magical Express and I have used it over 20 times since 2007! If you place the yellow Magical Express luggage tags on your checked in bags then they will magically appear in your Walt Disney World Resort room at Port Orleans Resort-Riverside approximately 3 to 5 hours after you land at the Orlando International Airport.  If you need your luggage sooner than 3 to 5 hours after you land then do not put the yellow Magical Express tags on your luggage.  You can pick up your luggage at the Orlando International Airport baggage claim and bring your luggage with you on the Magical Express bus (the luggage rides underneath your Magical Express bus). I prefer using the Magic Express luggage service because you do not have to worry about carrying around your checked bags (the only thing that you have to keep track of is your carry on bags).  Please do not hesitate to ask us Moms and Dads more questions as you plan for your first Walt Disney World vacation! 

    I hope that your first Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
