    Upon arrival at MCO utilizing your yellow luggage tags, do you have to go to baggage claim the retrieve first or will your luggage automatically go direct to your resort? Also, when returning to MCO on the ME, do you have to take the 3-hour assigned time?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Your Magical vacation to Walt Disney World is just around the corner!

    Apply your bright yellow Disney's Magical Express Luggage Stickers only to the luggage that you plan to 'check' on your flight. If you plan to be traveling with more than 1 piece of checked luggage per person, you can request additional luggage tags by calling 1-866-599-0951. These tags allow the baggage handlers to identify your luggage for Disney, who will have them "Magically" arrive in your resort room for you later in the day. You get to head straight off to a day full of fun!

    Upon arrival at Orlando International Airport, skip baggage claim entirely and head straight on down to board your Motor Coach to The Happiest Place On Earth! Simply follow the signage and proceed directly to Disney's Magical Express in the Main Terminal Building, B Side, Level 1.

    For your return to MCO, you'll receive a notice at your resort room the night prior to your departure advising of your Magical Express pick-up time. It is usually about 3 hours prior to your scheduled flight departure time to allow for travel time, possible stops at several other Walt Disney World Resort properties to pick up additional departing guests, and processing time for you and your traveling party at the airport. Should you prefer to, you may opt to decline use of the service and depart as you wish using other, private transportation at your own cost.

    Don't worry ... even after you depart, you still get a last little taste of extra magic even at the airport as there are TWO Disney Stores there! The perfect chance to grab that one, last souvenir or just browse around as you relive all your magical memories!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World Jennifer!
