    Hello! I'm going on my honeymoon to Disney next week and will use the Magical Express to get from the airport to the hotel but do we have to let the Magical Express take our bags separate? Or can we bring them with us on the motor coach?

    Hi Lindsey, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are honored to assist you with the planning of such a special trip! 

    I am happy to confirm that if you prefer to retrieve your own bags from the luggage carousel at the Orlando International Airport and bring them with you on your Disney Magical Express motorcoach, that is completely fine! Just remember NOT to place the yellow Magical Express baggage tags on your suitcases when checking them with your airline as all luggage with those tags automatically get routed directly to Magic Express upon arrival at the airport.

    The benefit, of course, of retrieving your own luggage at the airport is that you will not have to wait for it to be delivered to your room after arriving at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Otherwise, it can take up to 3 hours after arrival at your Disney Resort hotel until your luggage is delivered to your room.

    Be sure when checking into your Disney Resort hotel to ask for special complimentary celebration buttons to recognize your Honeymoon, as I expect many Cast Members and fellow Guests who you encounter during your trip will likely want to pass along their best wishes and congratulations.

    Please feel free to stop back with any further questions as you continue planning this very special vacation celebration, and all the very best from all of us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
