    We will be taking the Magical Express but from MCO airport to go the WDW. Do we have to go to our resort hotel first and then head to one of the theme parks? Will the Magical Express bus drop us at the Magic Kingdom instead of the resort hotel?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sachin! With just about a week to go, you must be getting so excited about your trip to Walt Disney World Resort! I know that my vacation officially starts once I've boarded Disney's Magical Express. It's so great to relax knowing that my luggage has been taken care of and I'm on my way to The Most Magical Place On Earth.

    When you board your enchanted motor coach, it will take you from the airport to your Resort Hotel. I definitely understand wanting to get straight to the Theme Parks so you can let the magic begin right away, but if you want to use Disney's Magical Express you'll need to be dropped off at your Resort Hotel first. Visiting your room before you hit the Theme Parks is a great idea because it'll give you the chance to get comfortable, change out of your travel clothes, prepare yourself a day bag, and make sure that your MagicBand is set up and ready to use. Then you can hop on the complimentary transportation and be at your favorite Theme Park within a few minutes!

    Here's a tip from the pros: if you arrive a little bit before check-in time and still want to head to the Theme Parks straight away, you can leave any of your carry-on luggage with Bell Services for the day! They'll keep your bags stored in a secure location until your room is ready and when you come back, you can pick them up or call down from your room to have them delivered to you. 

    Have a magical day, Sachin!
