    if i made reservations with flight and magical express included, do i still have to contact magical express separately or is everything taken care of and all i do is go to the ground floor once my flight arrives?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It's so nice to have Disney's Magical Express take care of your luggage and deliver it straight to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. 

    As long as you have reserved Disney's Magical Express with your booking agent for your Walt Disney World hotel reservation or when you made your Disney Resort hotel reservation online or over the phone and provided your flight information, you are good to go!

    Make sure you have your MagicBands with you (and not in checked bags) to use to board your motorcoach on Ground Transportation Side B, Level 1 at Orlando International Airport. If you have not received your MagicBands, please be prepared to present your Disney’s Magical Express documents (which will be mailed separately to you) to board the motorcoach. 

    Also, please attach Disney's Magical Express luggage tags to each bag that you plan on checking that you would like delivered to your Resort hotel room. If you forget, don't worry, just keep your bag tags from the airline and inform them at the Disney's Magical Express check-in desk. Be advised, your luggage will travel separately from you and may take up to 3 hours after you arrive at your hotel to be delivered to your room.

    If I know we will need our bags earlier than that, then I will usually pick them up from the baggage carousel and take them with me on Disney's Magical Express. But usually we don't, so when we arrive at our Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, we usually drop off some things and head straight to the theme parks!

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon.  Have a magical vacation!
