    Hi! Love the Panel!2 ques,planning split stay,9 days. Want to get best price for air, so booking 1 mth before trip.What is latest I can advise ME of my flights to be able to get docs? When transfer to 2nd res do we pick up lug at bell service or in room?

    Hi Emilia,

    Generally, after making your reservation, information about Disney’s Magical Express—including luggage tags—will be mailed to you approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to your arrival.

    So really, if you are only going to book your trip about a month before your arrival date at the Walt Disney World Resort, I would recommend that you contact Disney's Magical Express by calling (407) 939-1936 as soon as you make your reservation.

    If you would like your luggage delivered to your Disney Resort hotel room and do not receive your luggage tags prior to leaving home, simply provide your baggage claim numbers upon arrival at Disney’s Magical Express and they will take care of the rest (providing that you will be arriving in Orlando between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM).

    Alternatively, you could collect your hold luggage after disembarking the plane and take it on Disney's Magical Express with you. This is what my family do each and every time that we visit the Walt Disney World Resort. After such a long day travelling from the UK, we prefer to have our luggage with us so that we can unpack and get settled as soon as we arrive at our hotel room.

    Luggage transportation from one Disney Resort hotel to another can be done through Bell Services at your Resort hotel. When you are ready to transfer, take your luggage (or have Cast Members pick it up for you from your room), request the complimentary transfer and your luggage will be tagged and transported to your next Disney Resort hotel. Please do be aware however that it can take a couple of hours for the transfer to take place. 

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
