    We will fly into Orlando Int. and taking the ME tp our hotel. Does our luggage meet us at the hotel or do we have to get it and take it to the ME area to be loaded on the bus with us? Can you pullup and drop family off at gate to parks then go park car .

    Hello Michael!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more great questions.

    Disney's Magical Express is such a convenient way to travel from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort Hotel.  I love that my Walt Disney World vacation begins the moment I am welcomed (usually with the wave of a big Mickey hand!) by the friendly Cast Members at Disney's Magical Express kiosk at the airport.

    During the initial reopening period of Walt Disney World Resort, some temporary operational changes have been put in place.  At this time, Guests arriving at Orlando International Airport should pick up any checked luggage at baggage claim and bring it with them to the Disney's Magical Express check-in kiosk.  Luggage will be loaded for transport on the motorcoach and will travel with Guests to their Disney Resort Hotel.  Bell Services will be available at the hotel for luggage storage and/or assistance with luggage transport to your hotel room. Because your trip is still several months away, I recommend checking with us closer to your departure date to see if luggage delivery service has resumed.

    It sounds like you will have a vehicle for a portion of your trip.  There are dedicated Guest drop-off areas at each theme park parking lot.  As you approach the parking booths, watch for signs directing you to the drop-off areas, and let the Cast Member at the booth know your plans to drop off and then park.  They will be happy to direct you.  Keep in mind that the parking lot and Guest drop-off area for Magic Kingdom Park is at the Transportation and Ticket Center, and Guests must travel by monorail or ferry to reach the gates of Magic Kingdom Park.  Generally, I recommend using complimentary Disney Resort Transportation from your hotel to Magic Kingdom Park, as the monorail, buses, and water taxis drop Guests close to the front entrance.  If you would like to write back and let us know where you plan to stay, we'll be happy to provide recommendations on the best way to get to the theme parks from your hotel.

    Feel free to stop by the Moms Panel again anytime.  We are always happy to help.
