    When using Magical Express with luggage transfer; will our bags begin transit immediately or does it start after bus check-in? We will need to eat at the airport before heading to the bus and want to know if the delivery of bags will be extended.

    Hello Samuel!

    It won't be long until you are enjoying your time at the Walt Disney World Resort- you must be getting SO excited!

    Disney's Magical Express is by far the most cost-effective way to go from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. As far as your luggage go, once the Disney transfer tags are attached, your bags will take a slightly different route than you. Once your bags leave the airplane, they go through a series of adventures as they are sorted and stowed to be transported to the various resorts.  Your luggage will not be delayed due to you spending a bit of extra time at the airport. However, don't count on them speeding their way to your resort, as we have waited up to three hours after arriving at our resort to receive our luggage.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel- we love to help!

    See ya real soon,
