    We may have to check a stroller because it is a bit too large for gate check. Will we have time to go to baggage claim, grab it and still have time to catch our Magical Express bus? We are arriving too early to check into hotel and plan to walk around.

    Hi, Melanie!
    Don't worry!

    When you sign up for Disney's Magical Express, you are giving them an estimated time you will arrive. If you get there later than planned, they will just make sure you get on the next bus. You can take your time and get to your resort on your own time, not Disney's!

    Make sure you use the Online Check-In service and let your resort know you expect to get into town early. That won't guarantee you will be able to get a room early, but it can't hurt to give them the heads up. 

    Have a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Let me know if you have any additional questions. I'm happy to help.

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
