    With the high cost of luggage on the flights we are going to be bringing the largest carry-ons allowed to minimize checked bags. When riding Magical Express will this cause a problem or will these larger items be stowed under the bus. Less than 2 weeks!!

    Hi Jodie,

    The Magical Express coaches are well-equipped buses with room for carry on luggage overhead and under the seats.  The space can usually accommodate purses, backpacks, laptops and small roll-ons.  I've stored my carry-ons in the seat next to me when the coach was not at full capacity.  However, if the bus is full, and/or your bags are too large for storage on the bus, you can certainly store them below (along with strollers that may have been gate checked.)  When your bus stops at your Disney Resort, the driver will open the storage facility and give you your luggage.

    The bags you checked in at the airport in your departure city (the ones with the Magical Express tags) will arrive separately later in the day.  They will not be on the same bus as you going to the resort.

    I hope this helps.  Have fun in less than two weeks!
