    We were told we have to bring our own luggage on the Magic Express upon arrival. If our room is not ready, will the hotel still hold our luggage when we arrive if our room is not ready? We plan to go to the park as soon as we arrive.

    Hi, Jennifer!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  It's always a pleasure to help a fellow Pennsylvanian plan their magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    It sounds like you've been doing your resEARch and reading about the changes to resort operations during the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort.  One of these changes has to do with Disney's Magical Express service.  At this time, Disney's Magical Express service is not providing luggage delivery service for Guests.  If you will be using Disney's Magical Express service for transportation from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will need to pick up your checked luggage from the baggage claim area.  Your bags will be loaded onto your motorcoach bus and will travel with you to your resort hotel.

    I'm glad to hEAR that you're planning to pack as much pixie dust into your arrival day as possible!  I'm happy to tell you that you'll have no problem heading off to one of the theme parks right away.  Luggage assistance will be available at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, including luggage storage and help with transporting bags to your room.  If your room is not ready when you arrive at your resort hotel, simply check your bags with Bell Services, then hop aboard one of the many convenient theme park transportation options to start your vacation fun!

    For more information on the current modifications to Disney's Magical Express service, be sure to take a look at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels "Know Before You Go" page.  As you get ready for your visit, I would also recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news and announcements.  If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to ask!

    See ya real soon!
