    In the past we have always used Magic Express and checked our bags at our home airport and they went directly to our hotel. We are renting a car this year. Can we still check our bags for them to be delivered to our hotel or do we have to be using ME?

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    In order to have your luggage transported from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World using Disney's Magical Express, you do need to use Disney's Magical Express for your transportation as well .  So if you are renting a car, you cannot use Disney's Magical Express only for your luggage.  You will have to take your luggage with you in your rental car.

    You might have an option on your return trip to Orlando International Airport.  If you are flying on certain airlines and within the United States, you can check-in for your flight and check your luggage at your Walt Disney World resort using Resort Airline Check-In Service.  You can receive your boarding pass and check your luggage right there at the resort, so you won't have to worry about getting it back to the airport with you. 

    I hope this information is helpful for you, Angela!  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
