    Hello! We are thinking about taking the Magical Express from MCO to AOA. There is a ton of info around checked baggage, but we are doing carry-on only. Can we bring those with us at the time of pickup? We will have about 8 bags total. Thank you!

    Hi there, Katie! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    There is indeed a lot of information out there about the Walt Disney World Resort, isn't there? I'm happy you brought your question to us because we're now going to answer all of your questions about Disney's Magical Express! 

    I've been on Disney's Magical Express with my carry-on luggage a few times, and I'm happy to tell you that it will transport your luggage if you choose to travel that way. You can come up to the podium with your luggage and hand it to the driver as you approach your bus. As soon as you arrive at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, the driver will hand you your luggage so that you can check-in and enjoy this beautiful Disney Resort Hotel

    When I do that, I usually tip the driver for handling my luggage. I often tip between $2 and $5 per piece of luggage, depending on their weight. Tips are not mandatory, so it's up to you to choose to offer them or not. 

    We'll all be here hoping that you have a fantastic time at the Walt Disney World Resort, Katie! If more questions come up before you board Disney's Magical Express, please, let us help you again. We always love to assist kind Guests like you!

    May the magic be with you,
