    So glad you're still on the panel, Joanne! Leaving from Person Int. Arpt and registering for the Magical Express, but worried my 10 month old may be in meltdown mode by the time we land. If we bail and grab a taxi, what will happen to our luggage? Thanks!

    Thanks so very much for your kind words Rosemary! I'm back on the panel for the next three months, and so excited to be here! As long as one member of your party boards Magical Express, all will be good with your bags. Here are a couple of options for you:
    - Don't rush to the Magical express counter. Orlando International airport has a fantastic food court (Chic-Fil-A is our favourite!) as well as play areas throughout. Give your weary traveller a bit of a break before heading to the bus.
    - You could also not put the yellow Magical Express stickers on your luggage. This way, pick up your bags, and then you can either take a cab or use Disney transportation.

    One thing to note is that the buses are extremely comfortable. Once you hit the highway, an introduction video to Walt Disney World plays, filled with everyone's favourite characters, which might also keep your little one occupied for the ride to your resort.

    If you do check your bags with magical Express, don't forget to bring some other necessities with you in your carry on, as it can take a few hours for your bags to get to your room. I always pack sunscreen, change of clothes, bathing suits and sandals.

    Hope this helps Rosemary! Wishing you and your family a magical vacation!
