    Hello-We will be using Disney's Magical Express to and from WDW and the airport. Our airline charges fees for checked bags, and I was wondering how this works if we do not handle our bags when we leave Orlando. When do we pay for our checked bags. Thanks

    Hi Sharon - this is a great question.  I actually traveled on the Magical Express on one of the first days that my airline charged fees for checked bags, and there was much confusion at the check-in counter.

    The day before you are scheduled to leave Walt Disney World, you will receive a letter from the Magical Express hanging on your doorknob.  The letter will include your departure time, as well as a telephone number to call to prepay for your checked bags, prior to leaving.  I found it quite easy to prepay with a major credit card -- it's just one additional step in the process.

    You will be given a confirmation code when you pay, and be sure to have that confirmation code available when you check-in at the Magical Express.

    Have a great vacation!
