    Hi, my family arrives from the UK with VA. We have booked the magical express but we don't have any luggage tags for the bags so that they will get collected and don't know what a baggage claim number is. How do we ensure our bags are collected?

    Hello Gemma and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where it's super fun for me to assist another Guest from the United Kingdom with their jolly holiday plans to visit the magic of Walt Disney World Resort. 
    I'm delighted to know you've got your holiday route all mapped out and I can assure you that beginning your Disney holiday with a relaxing motor coach journey aboard Disney's Magical Express will be practically perfect in every way!
    I'm happy to share that at present UK Guests aren't provided with luggage tags for Disney's Magical Express. As international visitors disembarking a flight from the UK at Orlando International Airport (MCO) you must first clear U.S Customs & Border Protection before returning your suitcases to the luggage carousel, after which head for Disney's Magical Express which is located and clearly sign posted on Side B, Level 1 of the airport and provide your baggage claim numbers which should be located on the printed airline label to the Cast Member assisting. Generally speaking delivery of suitcases to your Resort room can take around 3 hours after arrival, so be sure to carry in your hand luggage perhaps a change of clothes, toiletries or any other necessary items. 
    It may be useful to know that my family always takes our luggage with us on Disney's Magical Express, that way we can ensure we have everything we need right away without having to wait and our holiday can begin asap! 
    I also thought you'd find these Air Transportation - Frequently Asked Questions to be an extra useful planning resource.
    Have a great Disney day.
