    We are registered for the Magical express but are wondering if the bags cane "magically" whisked to our hotel and we ride to the hotel in a rental car that is needed for other reasons?

    Hi Ellen!  Thank you for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Luggage delivery service is provided as part of, but not separately from, Disney's Magical Express complimentary airport transportation.  In order to receive the yellow luggage tags for luggage delivery service, Guests will need a reservation for Disney's Magical Express.  Ground transfers via Disney's Magical Express can be reserved when booking a vacation online or by phone.  To add Disney's Magical Express transportation to a previously booked reservation, call the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line at (407) 939-1936.

    I also sometimes need a rental car when visiting Walt Disney World  Resort, so I have a few suggestions for you to make this work.

    • If you have more than one adult in your party, split up and have one person handle the car rental and driving while the rest of the group travels via Disney's Magical Express.
    • If you will only need a car for part of your vacation, consider a car rental using the Car Care Center as a pick-up and/or drop-off location.  Complimentary shuttle service to or from the Car Care Center is available.
    • If your entire party prefers to travel by car, pick up your bags yourself at baggage claim (do not attach the yellow Disney's Magical Express luggage tags.)  I have found the baggage claim process is usually quite efficient at Orlando International Airport.  Often by the time I make my way to baggage claim, my bags arrive on the carousel shortly after.  (Full disclosure: Yes, there have been a few times when baggage claim was painfully slow.) We will often send one person to handle the rental car pick-up while the rest retrieve the luggage. 
    I hope that helps!  Please feel free to visit the Moms Panel again any time with any additional questions you may have.

    Enjoy your visit!
