    Hello Moms! I heard that if we are flying Southwest we must pick up our own bags at MCO because Magical Express will not transport them. Is this true? Must we collect our bags at baggage claim? Thanks!

    Hi Elizabeth,

    I am pleased to report that Southwest Airlines is included on the list of airlines that participates in the Magical Express Service at Orlando International Airport.  When the service was first offered years ago, Southwest did not participate.  That may be the source of the rumor you heard, but fortunately, Southwest now participates.  You do not need to collect your luggage at baggage claim as long as you have attached the appropriate Magical Express luggage tags to your bags before departing your home airport.

    Wishing you a safe and magical journey!
