    We are taking the Magic Express from the airport to the our resort. Will our carry-ons be taken to our room with our luggage. Or will we have to take them with us until check-in? Also, how often do the Magical Express buses run? & do we need reservatio

    If you'd like to use the Magical Express service, you do need to make a reservation. If you booked your trip through Disney, then call 407-WDISNEY and the representative can help you add this free service to your vacation package. If you booked through a travel agent, you will need to contact that business and ask them to make the arrangements for you.

    You will receive special luggage tags in the mail before your trip, and Disney Cast Members will use those to pick up your bags in the airport. This means that once you board the plane in Pennsylvania, you won't see your bags again until you are in your resort room. Any carry on luggage you take with you will remain in your possession. If you'd like, when you board the magical express bus you can have the driver store your carry-ons underneath.

    Buses run periodically. There is no published schedule, but they are frequent throughout the day and I don't recall ever having to wait more than, say, 20 minutes or so.

    Hope that helps!
