    Is it possible to ride the Magical Express directly from the airport to the Magic Kingdom without going to our resort first? Will our luggage still arrive to our resort if we don't physically check-in until that evening?

    Dear Melanie,

    Thank you for stopping by with your question! How exciting your trip is exactly one month from today!
    One of my favorite perks of staying at a Disney Resort is the complimentary motor coach ride from the airport to your Disney Hotel and back. Disney's Magical Express offers this very convenient service from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort when you arrive and then back to catch your flight once your vacation comes to an end. Disney's Magical Express does not transport guests to theme parks or other Disney destinations. Complimentary bus service to all theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs is available from and to Disney hotels as well as water taxi and monorail service. 

    Since check-in usually happens at 3:00 p.m. and we do not want to wait that long to get to a park, we usually leave our luggage with Bell Services and ask to get a notification (via text or email) from the Front Desk when our room is ready. At that point, if you are ready to come back to the hotel for a late lunch or early dinner and freshen up a little bit you can do so and then go back to the park (or another park if you are park hopping) OR you can stay put and get to your room at the end of the day. Either way, you are set for lots of Disney magic! 

    Melanie, be sure to check the calendar for Extra Magic Hours an exclusive benefit of Disney Resort Hotel guests. 
    Thank you for visiting us and do not hesitate to come back with more questions, we'd love to see you again on the Disney Parks Moms Panel

    See ya real soon!
