    We have reserved our spot on the magical express. We will be arriving in Orlando at roughly 7:30pm. I know that Disney will transfer our luggage to our rooms, however, I would prefer to grab it myself. Will I have time to grab my luggage?

    Hi Amber!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so glad that you stopped by with a question for us. I know you must be getting excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and I’m sure you and your family are going to have an amazing time!

    I’m glad to hear that you’re planning to take Disney’s Magical Express from the Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort Hotel. It’s truly a magical beginning to your vacation experience since you’ll be whisked away and promptly taken to your resort. Typically, I love using the baggage service since it means you don’t have to worry about stopping at baggage claim but since it can take several hours to arrive at your room, I can see why you might want to grab it yourself. And that is perfectly fine for you to do! Just be sure that you don’t use the luggage tags that will be sent with your Disney’s Magical Express information. That way your bags will go directly to baggage claim just as they would after any other flight. Keep in mind that you could always pack what you need for that night in a carry-on bag and let Disney handle getting your checked bags for you if you change your mind. It really is a nice perk not to have to worry about it, but it’s totally up to you!

    Once you arrive at your resort, Disney Transportation will continue to magically transport you throughout the parks and resorts while you sit back, relax and let someone else do the driving. So be sure to take advantage of that service along with all of the other benefits of being a Disney Resort Guest. And if you have any other questions, please just let us know. We’re always happy to help make your trip a little more magical if we can. Enjoy every second and make lots of special memories!
