    Can you fly into MCO, stay at an airport hotel (all items needed in a small carryon) and then go to our disney resort hotel the next day using the Magical express? What will happen with all of our checked luggage? Will it arrive at the hotel a day early?

    Hi Mona,

    I think you're going to really enjoy Disney's Magical Express Service between Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World.  I just rode those comfortable Disney buses last week during a vacation at Disney's Pop Century Resort.  They were convenient, air-conditioned, and fun!

    If you plan to use Disney's Magical Express Service you will need to ride the bus to your Disney resort on the day your flight arrives. (If your flight arrives after 10 pm you will need to pick up your luggage at the baggage carousel personally).  You cannot stay overnight at an airport hotel and then ride the bus the next day.  Similarly, when you return to Orlando International Airport, Disney's Magical Express Service is only available on the day your return flight is scheduled. See the guidelines governing Disney's Magical Express Transportation here

    Wishing you a truly magical Walt Disney World vacation!
