    If I plan on using Disney Magic Express, do I need to follow my luggage to the hotel or does the magic express take my luggage to the hotel and I can head straight to the parks for opening.


    Thanks for your question!

    So when you take Disney's Magical Express, they will take care of your bags for you! 

    Here is how it works. You need to make a Magical Express reservation by calling (407) 939-1936. At that time you will give them your flight information, as well as your resort reservation information. They will send you luggage tags that you put on your checked bags BEFORE you check in to your flight at your home airport. When you arrive at the Orlando International Airport, you get on the Disney Magical Express bus while Disney grabs your bags for you. They then arrange for the bags to get from the airport straight to your resort room. You do not even have to be in your room when the bags arrive. They will put them in your room for you!

    One important note. The Magical Express buses go from the airport to the resort hotels, but not directly to the parks. So what you will do is take the bus to your resort, then you can head off to your park of choice. For my family that is just fine, as we like to get to the resort to drop off our carry-ons at the Bell services desk. That way we can travel light in the parks.

    Now if you want to go straight to the parks via personal transportation, that is fine. As long as you have booked Magical Express and attached the tags to your luggage, they will still end up in your room later that day.

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions?

    Have a Magical Vacation!
