    Too many ?s so little time! Leaving in 20 day...wondering how strollers work with the Disney Magical Express? Do you put the yellow tag on them and check them as luggage or can keep them to use at the airport? Can't decide what to do!


    We travel with one single stroller and one double stroller, so I'm well-versed in the stroller transportation department!

    We take ours to the gate with us.  Check in at the desk and ask for a tag.  You'll need to fill out a luggage tag for it and the attendant will attach a tag as well.  Then we wheel it down the ramp and leave it just outside the plane entrance.  The airline crew stows it beneath the plane for us, and when we get off the plane they will bring it back to that same spot.  Very convenient!

    This saves us from having to use up a piece of luggage on a stroller (even more precious since most airlines are only allowing one bag per person now!).  It also drastically reduces the amount of walking for the kids, or distance that we have to carry the kids, which is really helpful!

    When you get to Magical Express the driver will be happy to store the stroller under the bus for you, as well as any carry-ons that you've brought.  The rest of your luggage will be delivered straight to your hotel.

    Have a fantastic trip!
