    Hello! We plan on taking MDE from the airport but want to rent a car mid week so will need a car seat. Will we be able to use luggage tags on our car seat and have it delivered to the room with the rest of the luggage?

    Hey, Ashley! I am so glad you are thinking ahead about your safety needs. Most rental car companies are able to provide car seats and booster seats when you rent a vehicle from them; however, bringing your own can be a much more cost-effective solution. I have done the same thing you are planning and have some great information to share with you.

    Disney's Magical Express service can not only get you to your Disney Resort Hotel, but also your luggage if you utilize the yellow luggage provided to you via mail. You will most likely be mailed one yellow tag for each member of your travel party. If you do need more, just give Disney's Magical Express a call to request them. When you check-in for your flight at your home airport, affix the yellow tags to all of your bags that are being checked, including your car seat. If you have a storage bag for it, then I highly recommend you place the car seat in it and affix the yellow tag to the bag. It will then be sent on its way to your Disney Resort Hotel once it arrives at Orlando International Airport. In my experience, our luggage usually finds its way to our room about three or four hours after we land.

    When it is time to return home, check to see if your airline participates in the Resort Airline Check-In Service. If it does, then you will be able to check your luggage and car seat right at your resort and have them sent to the airport ahead of your arrival. This really makes for a smooth departure day!

    Ashley, have you booked your rental car yet? If not, I highly recommend looking at pick-up locations right on Walt Disney World Resort property. I always first search the National Car Rental and Alamo Rent-A-Car locations at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel near the International Gateway entrance to Epcot and the Car Care Center near Magic Kingdom Park. Other car rental companies have locations at Disney Springs area hotels.

    I hope you have a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort and please let us know if you have any other questions!
