    I’m surprising my son for our first “Mommy & Me Disney Vacation” in April. Can you tell me have to register for the Magical Express bus to be picked up from the airport to our hotel on site?

    Hi there Tanya!

    Welcome Foolish Mortals, staying at a Disney Resort Hotel adds even more magic to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. From the moment I step off the plane and head to Disney’s Magical Express, I know I am going to be living in the magic for the duration of my trip! Make sure to have your flight information and hotel reservation ready before you call to reserve Disney’s Magical Express. The Cast Member will then be able to reserve your trip on Disney’s Magical Express dependent on your flight arrival time, as well as which Disney Resort Hotel you are staying at.

    Disney’s Magical Express also offers luggage delivery to your Disney Resort Hotel room! If you arrive between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. you can have your bags meet back up with you in your room. The luggage delivery is what I enjoy the most! Approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to your arrival you will receive tags in the mail that can be attached to each bag that you want delivered to your room. Keep in mind, that delivery can take up to 3 hours, so keep your essentials in your carry-on luggage! (Tip: Don’t pack your MagicBands in your checked luggage, you will need those to board Disney’s Magical Express).

    There are so many other benefits to staying at a Disney Resort Hotel! If you have not already done so, download the My Disney Experience Mobile App and link your existing hotel reservation. There you can select your MagicBands and add FastPass+ reservations 60 days before you arrive!

    If you need more tips and tricks for this exciting mommy and me vacation be sure to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we are all so eager to help you create a magical time!

    Hurry back!
