    Does it matter if we have a split stay when scheduling magical express? I went to do online and it only asked about resort name. But when we depart, we will be at a different hotel. Does that matter or can I just enter 1st reservation?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Lerin. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to see you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort next week! You're sure to have a magical stay.

     You're going to love experiencing the Disney Resorts Collection. When you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you stay IN the magic, even after you've left the theme parks! I'm a big fan of split-stays. When my family has two different hotel reservations in a single vacation, we can experience the unique amenities and theming of more than one hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection!

     I'm pleased to tell you that you may certainly arrange for Disney Magical Express Service, even though you've booked a split-stay. Since the form you're trying to complete only requests one Disney Resort hotel, I very much recommend calling Disney's Magical Express Service directly at 1 (866) 599-0951. A friendly Cast Member there will be happy to book your motorcoach service for you! Be sure to have your incoming and outgoing flight information on hand when you call, as well as both of your Disney Resort hotel reservation confirmation numbers so that your arrival and departure can be coordinated. 

     It's important to note that luggage delivery is no longer available. When you land at Orlando International Airport, head straight to baggage claim. After you've collected your checked luggage, you can check into Disney's Magical Express Service. When it's time to board your motorcoach, your driver will load your bags onto the motorcoach for you. I always try to keep small bills on hand so that I can tip our driver for handling my family's luggage. Tips aren't required, of course, but they are certainly appreciated!

     I hope this was helpful, Lerin. I'm wishing you a Disney vacation that is practically perfect in every way!
