    Do I need to make reservations for the Magical Express?

    Hi Connie!

    Thanks so much for popping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is a great question and I’m glad you are being so thorough with your planning. You will be at Walt Disney World Resort soon and I definitely recommend you reserve your spot on Disney’s Magical Express.

    To reserve this complimentary service, call (407) 939-1936 as soon as possible. Make sure you have your flight information so Disney’s Magical Express can coordinate your motorcoach and luggage service. 

    Once you reserve Disney’s Magical Express, details and luggage tags are typically mailed approximately two to three weeks prior to your arrival. Given your arrival date is so soon, you may or may not receive the information packet in time. If you do, attach the luggage tags to each bag you would like Disney’s Magical Express to deliver to your Resort hotel room. If you don't receive your luggage tags by the time you head to your local airport, no worries! Simply provide your baggage claim numbers to a Cast Member when you check-in at Disney’s Magical Express. The Cast Member will scan your claim numbers and coordinate your luggage transfer.

    If you arrive at Orlando International Airport between 10:00 PM and 5:00 AM, proceed to baggage claim at the airport, claim your bags and take them to the Disney's Magical Express check-in. From there, you will scan your MagicBand (be sure to keep it with you in your carry-on bags) and then proceed to your motorcoach with your luggage. Your items will be stowed with other Guests' items and returned to you when you arrive at your Resort hotel.

    Disney's Magical Express makes my heart so happy! When I first board the Disney's Magical Express motorcoach, I know my Walt Disney World Resort vacation has officially started!!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
