    We have 4 people on my reservation but 3 different flight itineraries. I planned to provide Magical Express with the different flights. Will all luggage tags be sent to me and I distribute? Also can we wait for each other at the airport and ride together?

    Hi there, Paula! One of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is Disney's Magical Express, a complimentary motorcoach service which runs from Orlando International Airport to every Resort on Walt Disney World property. Mickey wants to make sure your vacation begins the moment you step onboard!

    One of the most magical aspects of this service is the ability to skip baggage claim. About 30 days before your arrival, you'll receive bright yellow Magical Express luggage tags. These luggage tags are typically mailed to the guest who made the reservation (this week, I'll be traveling to my "Happy Place" with a friend of mine, and the luggage tags were sent to her address since she made the booking). Since the tags all come in one envelope to one address, you'll need to mail them out to the rest of your traveling party. Alternatively, you can also call Disney's Magical Express at (866) 599-0951, and ask for a second set to be mailed to another address. Usually, it takes about two weeks for the additional tags to be processed and sent out. 

    Since you'll all be arriving at different times, you are welcome to wait so you can all take the motorcoach to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel together. I usually grab a bite to eat and shop; of course, Disney's Earport and the Magic of Disney stores are two places where I like to spend some time (and money) before heading to the "House of the Mouse!" Once you've assembled your traveling party, head down to the Ground Transportation Area in Terminal B, Level 1. Cast Members will magically claim your checked luggage on your behalf and deliver it directly to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room. It can take up to 3-4 hours for your bags to arrive, so I recommend packing a small drawstring bag with your Park essentials (including your MagicBands). 

    Have a fantastic vacation, Paula! See ya' real soon!
