    We are flying out Tuesday! Magical Express sent us 5 luggage tags for the 5 people in our family. I was hoping to only pack 3 or 4 large suitcases. Will that mess things up if they are expecting to find one bag for each of us?

    Hi there, Shari! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It’s nice to hear from you again, and I’m so excited to hear you are only a few sleeps away from your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    I’ve got a Disney vacation coming up in just a few weeks, and I’ve already started planning our outfits and setting things aside to bring – I love the packing stage because it’s so much fun to visualize all the fun we’re about to have. I hope you enjoy getting those suitcases packed and imagining the adventure that’s in store.

    As for the yellow luggage tags that you’ll attach to your checked baggage for Disney’s Magical Express, just use as many as you need. They send you enough for each member of your party to check a bag, but you don’t need to use them all. At the airport, the staff will find your bags, scan them, and auto-magically whisk them away to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room. When you check in at the Disney’s Magical Express podium, the Cast Member there will ask how many bags you checked to ensure the count at baggage claim matches what you’ve brought. Then you can hop on board your magical motorcoach and leave the rest to the Mouse’s crew. As a quick logistical side note, it’s customary to tip Bell Services for each bag they deliver to your room (and your Disney’s Magical Express Driver as well, if they will be stowing any carry-on luggage underneath the coach for you), so don’t forget to bring cash for tipping purposes. 

    Shari, I hope you have save travels and the most magical vacation. Several of my fellow Panelists are at the Walt Disney World Resort right now, and I have been loving seeing all their photos and videos of the holiday magic that has transformed the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. I hope you have the most merry and magical time! If you think of any more questions as you count down the minutes until your visit, come on back and see us.

    Let the Magic Begin!
