    Hi - when returning home and using Magical Express, but not Resort Check-in, what happens to my bags at the Orlando Airport? Are they given to me when we arrive at the airport and then I proceed to my airline's check-in with my bags?

    Hi Warren!

    Disney's Magical Express, which provides complimentary motorcoach transportation to and from the Orlando International Airport is one of many great perks available to guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels. My family has used Disney’s Magical Express countless times. We find it a great, hassle-free way to kick off our Disney vacations. And while there is never an easy way to end a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, taking Disney's Magical Express back to the Orlando International Airport is probably the best way to extend the Disney magic a little longer. Arriving at the airport in true Disney style is never a bad thing!

    Warren, if you are not using Resort Airline Check-In services, you will bring your luggage with you when checking in for Disney's Magical Express return transportation to the airport. Your friendly driver will be happy to assist by placing your luggage in the locked storage compartment outside the motorcoach for the trip back to the airport. Upon arrival, your luggage will be retrieved by the driver and you will then take it with you when checking in with your airline for your flight home.

    Don't forgot that your pick up time for Disney Magical Express return transportation to the airport will be communicated to your room via a Transportation Notice the day prior to check-out. Typically the pick up time will be approximately three hours in advance of your scheduled flight departure time for domestic flights within the United States.
    Warren, I hope this information was helpful. Should you have any other questions, please let us know. We are here to help.

    Magically Yours,
