    If I use the Magical Express, would it okay if I pick up my luggage myself from the gate instead of having someone else from Disney pick it up for me? it's more comforting for me to have my luggage with me.

    Hi there, Rachel!

    Disney's Magical Express IS truly magical.  From the moment you board that motor coach, you will already feel yourself slip into vacation mode.  If you would prefer to handle your own luggage, that is completely fine.  In order to do that, you should not attach the Magical Express Luggage Tags (stickers) to your bags. When you check-in for your flight, check your bags as you normally would.  Upon arrival at Orlando International Airport, you will go to baggage claim, as usual, to claim you bags.  Once you have them, you will head to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center.  As you approach your motor coach, the driver will load your luggage for you underneath the bus.  It is that simple!

    Thanks for visiting us at the DIsney Parks Moms Panel, Rachel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation!
