    We're flying in from the UK and wondered if we received the luggage tags at the airport so our baggage will be collected and sent to the hotel or do we have to pick it up from baggage claim before heading for Magical Express?

    Hello Kayleigh and thank you for bringing such an important international travel question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Just like you, my family and I fly direct from the United Kingdom and arrive into Orlando International Airport and we all just love utilising the wonderful, not to mention super convenient services of Disney's Magical Express upon our arrival. 
    As international visitors to the U.S.A my top tips for a swift and pixie dusted exit of the airport are to follow the U.S Customs & Border Protection process and claim your luggage upon disembarking your aeroplane. 
    Once this initial process is completed it is possible to return your luggage to the carousel for delivery to your Disney Resort hotel and then proceed to Disney's Magical Express check-in desk found on Side B, Level 1 of the airport; be sure to make a note of those airline baggage claim numbers!  
    However my family prefers to take our luggage with us on the motor coach so we can settle into our Resort room right away and not have to wait a possible 3 further hours for our things to arrive. 
    I'm sure that you'll have a magical holiday to Walt Disney World Resort making memories which are sure to last an entire lifetime! 
    Have a great Disney day!
