    We are taking the magic express from Orlando airport to Disney. Does it go straight to the parks or do we have to go to the hotel first before the parks?

    Hi there, Alicia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so glad that you stopped by with your question.

    I'm sure you're getting excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort, and I am happy to tell you that taking Disney's Magical Express from the Orlando International Airport is truly magical! Before you ever leave home, you'll be provided with luggage tags to place on all of your checked bags. Once you arrive in Orlando, you can head straight to the Magical Express arrival area in the airport without even worrying about going to baggage claim. Your checked bags will magically appear in your room after your arrival at your resort hotel. Once you've boarded your motorcoach, you'll be on your way to the Happiest Place on Earth! You'll be dropped off at your resort hotel where you can store any carry-on items that you may have with Bell Services if your room isn't quite ready. Then you can head straight over to the parks to get your vacation started!

    It's really that easy, and I hope you'll find arriving at Walt Disney World Resort as magical as I do. I sure hope you have an amazing vacation and please let us know if we can help with anything else.
