    We are flying to WDW with 2 & 4 year old & haven’t used Magic Express before; Are we supposed to pick-up/bring our checked bags to a specific bus at Orlando Airport? If our flight is delayed does that mess up our Magic Express reservation? Thanks!

    Hi, there!

     Thanks so much for sending me another question, Courtney. It's my pleasure to help you plan an unforgettable Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     I just love Disney's Magical Express, and I bet you will too! I have super great news for you; you don't need to grab your checked luggage from the baggage claim area. Disney will claim your checked bags for you, and magically deliver them to your Resort hotel room! When your flight lands at Orlando International Airport, just proceed to Disney's Magical Express in the Ground Transportation Area on Side B, Level 1. You'll be assigned a motorcoach when you check-in with the Cast Members there. Don't worry if your flight is delayed! You can count on Disney's Magical Express to whisk you away to your Resort hotel, no matter when you arrive at the airport. I know my little ones always need a stop at the restroom after getting off an airplane, so don't hesitate to take the time you need before getting to Disney's Magical Express!

     A few tips, Courtney... Be sure to attach the luggage tags Disney sends you to the bags you'll be checking, but not to fret if you don't have them, or if you simply forget! As long as you have your checked baggage claim numbers to hand to the Cast Members at Disney's Magical Express, Disney will make sure your bags are delivered to your Resort hotel room. Keep your MagicBands with you in your carry-ons. They'll be used to check-in with Disney's Magical Express, and to unlock your room when you arrive at your Resort hotel! Speaking of carry-ons, make sure to pack everything in your carry-on that you'll immediately need upon arrival. It can take up to three hours for your checked bags to arrive in your room, and you don't want to be without your must-haves!

     Thanks for stopping by!
