    When using the Disney’s Magical Express, can I check my child’s car seat with the rest of my luggage to be delivered to my room, or does a car seat not qualify as luggage?

    Hi John, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an important question.

    Disney’s Magical Express® is my favorite way to travel in style from Orlando International Airport to my Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. This complimentary service allows you to tag your luggage before checking your bags at your point of departure. When you arrive at the airport you can skip baggage claim and proceed directly to Disney’s Magical Express Check-In area. There is no need for your child to use a car seat while onboard the motor coach. There are no seatbelts available on the motorcoach to secure the car seat.

    If your airline requires your child to fly in their car seat, you would not be able to tag it for Magical Express delivery because it will not be with your luggage in the cargo area. You would have to bring it with you and have the motorcoach driver store it with bags under the bus, while you travel to your resort. Once you arrive your driver will assist you in retrieving your car seat. You can always request the help of Bell Services at your resort if you need further assistance in getting it to your room. I hope that answers your question. If you need any more help before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
