    Hello! I am a little confused about to luggage deal. Will I bring all my luggage on the magical express with me or will they deliver it to my hotel? Thanks for all your help!

    Hi Alexis! It is understanding that you might be a bit confused about the Magical Express services as there are a few exceptions to the general rules.

    If you have signed up to take advantage of this great complimentary transportation service from the airport you will be mailed your Magical Express luggage tags a couple of weeks before your departure date. You will need to adhere these to all of your luggage before you depart from your city. Upon arrival all you will need to do is head to the Magical Express location at the Orlando Airport and check in there to get on your resort bus. Once you arrive at your resort you will check in and be assigned a room. Your luggage will be delivered to your room a couple of hours later. You do not have to be in the room so this gives you a chance to enjoy the resort facilities or head to a park, etc.

    Now the exception to this is if your flight will arrive at 10pm or later. If this is the case then you will still have to go to the baggage claim to get your luggage and take it with you on the bus.

    When it is time to return home you will need to check your bags no less then three hours before your flight departure time and you can do this right at your resort. It is so convenient to rid yourself of the luggage before you even head for the airport on the Magical Express bus. Any luggage charges must be done prior to checking in and the desk will be glad to print you your boarding pass as well.

    Again the exception to this is when you have a very early flight leaving Orlando. Since you have to check bags three hours ahead you will not be able to do this if your flight leaves before 8am. The check-in desk opens at 5am. If you do have an early flight you will again need to take the bags with you on the bus.

    Be sure your airline is one of the participating airlines to this Magical Express program too.
