    Hi there! I’m slightly confused on how the Magical Express works for Canadians. Do I have go and hunt down my checked bag or will Disney be picking it up as long as I have the yellow label on it? I just don’t want to lose my luggage. Thank you~

    Hi Shelley, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It’s wonderful to see you again!

    The answer to your question depends on when you clear United States Customs during your trip. If you’re flying through a major Canadian airport, you’ll likely be able to clear U.S. Customs on Canadian soil. Based on my experience, that means that, when you land, you’re treated the same way as any passenger arriving from a domestic United States airport and you shouldn’t need to clear Customs again. Because of that, your yellow-tagged bags should head straight to your Disney Resort Hotel, without having to pick them up on the baggage carrousel.

    If, however, you need to clear Customs when you arrive at Orlando International Airport, then you’ll need to pick up your checked bag and proceed down to the Disney’s Magical Express counter in order to send it to your Disney Resort Hotel. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan a smooth start to your vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
