    We will be flying in from cold Illinois. We will arrive prior to check-in time. We will stop by our resort and drop off our bags as we cannot use the Magical Express. Do you have a suggestion for how to pack so we're ready to go from plane to park?

    Hi Julie, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question. As someone who visits from an equally cold place and who seldom uses Disney’s Magical Express, I definitely have some experience with getting off the plane and wanting to get out of my winter clothes ASAP… 

    What we normally do is pack the clothes that we want to change into in either a day bag (if we have checked luggage) or on the top of our carry-on suitcases.  I actually change right away at the airport, but you can also go straight to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and change in a bathroom there, right before leaving your bags with Bell Services. I also usually have a small duffel bag packed into my luggage for storing all of the winter stuff during our vacation (out of sight, out of mind). Once that’s done, you’ll be good to go and have some fun in the Florida sunshine! 

    Have a Magical Day,
