    I'm using the Magical Express and don't want to go to the hotel first, hopping a bus straight to Disney Springs once we arrive at Disney. Will my luggage still be delivered if I dont have a room number yet? I'm using online checkin.

    Hi Amy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    In just one week you'll be hopping aboard Disney's Magical Express and on your way to the Walt Disney World Resort. I feel like my vacation officially begins as soon as I step foot on the bus. It's such a wonderful feeling!

    When you arrive at Orlando International Airport and check in at the podium for Disney's Magical Express, you'll be directed to the bus that is heading directly to your Disney Resort hotel. The easiest way to check in is by scanning your MagicBand, so be sure to keep that with you when traveling. There aren't buses from the airport that can transport you to the theme parks or Disney Springs initially, but once you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel, you can stroll over to the bus stop and take one of the Walt Disney World buses to Disney Springs.

    If you are checking your luggage during your flight, you can simply attach the yellow luggage tags you should have received for Disney's Magical Express and they will show up auto-magically in your room later that day even if you don't know your room number yet. It's one of my favorite perks about Disney's Magical Express! Trekking through the airport with little ones in tow is crazy enough for me! I'm happy to let someone else handle my bags! If you don't have the yellow luggage tags, keep your baggage claim number and give it to the Cast Member at the check-in podium for Disney's Magical Express and they will get your bags that way.

    If you have any carry-on suitcases with you, they will be stored under the bus for your journey and retrieved when you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel. You can leave them with Bell Services in the lobby if your room isn't ready yet and you don't want to take them with you to Disney Springs.

    I hope you have the best vacation, Amy! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have.
