    If we use the Magical Express are we allowed to bring our bags on board with us? or do we have to let them be picked up by Disney? we would prefer to have our bags right away, also we are flying from Canada so do we have to claim our bags anyway?

    Hi Sarah!

    Yes, you can bring all of your checked bags with you on the Magical Express Bus and that way you will have access to all of your things right when you check in to your Resort.  To do this, make sure that you do not put the yellow Magical Express Luggage Tags on your luggage when you check your bags in at your departing airport.  When you get to the Orlando Airport, you will have to go to baggage claim and pick up your luggage. Then you transport your luggage to Magical Express yourself and have them loaded underneath the Magical Express bus that you are taking to your Walt Disney World Resort. When you get to your Resort, you get your bags from under the bus and you will have instant access to them. I have done this many times before and it works great!

    I hope that your next trip to Walt Disney World is extra magical!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
