    My family will be flying in and using the magical express. Can we retrieve our own bags when we get off the plane and take them on the bus with us? or do we have to let a cast member retrieve our luggage?

    Welcome back, Meagan!

    Thanks for allowing us to help you in your Walt Disney World vacation planning!

    Once you arrive at the Orlando International Airport, you are more than welcome to retrieve your bags from baggage claim and then head to the Magical Express boarding area. Just be sure to NOT put the yellow tags on your luggage. These tags are used to identity which luggage should be picked up and transported to the resorts. 

    Once you board Disney's Magical Express, the Cast Member driving the motor coach can assist you with loading your bags into the luggage area under the bus. 

    We've done this on a few occasions when we wanted to head directly to our resort room to change clothes and settle in without having to wait for our luggage to arrive. 

    I hope this help! If you have more questions, please visit with us again!
