    When using the Magical Express when we arrive at the airport, are we allowed to get our own luggage and bring it on the bus with us so we wont have to wait for it to arrive in our room at the resort?

    Hi Erica!

    I'm happy to hear that you are planning on taking advantage of Disney's Magical Express for your transportation from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort to start your vacation. It's definitely my favorite way to start a trip to visit Mickey because it's so nice to not have to worry about navigation, rental cars or parking at your Disney Resort hotel. Plus, the Disney entertainment you can enjoy during your ride is the perfect way for everyone in the family to get excited about starting your vacation!

    Disney's Magical Express provides luggage service to Guests who are arriving at Orlando International Airport between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m., where your luggage will be magically transported to your hotel room, allowing you to bypass baggage claim. However, if you are flying outside of those times or if you would prefer for your luggage to travel with you to your Disney's Resort hotel, you can pick up your luggage yourself at airport baggage claim and bring it with you to the Disney's Magical Express terminal so it can travel on your bus with you. In that case, be sure that you do not place the yellow Disney's Magical Express luggage tags on your bags when you check them in at your home airport for your flight.

    Since Disney's Magical Express luggage service can take up to three hours for your bags to arrive at your Disney Resort hotel, it's a great idea to claim your bags yourself at baggage claim if you will need your bags earlier or if you have an evening flight, so you don't have to wait for luggage before head to bed. Again, it is essential to ensure that you do not put the yellow luggage tags on your bags if you will be picking them up yourself, as the yellow tags will direct them to be included in Disney's Magical Express luggage delivery.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
