    I will be using the Magical Express for my upcoming trip. I don't plan on checking luggage. What happens if the airline checks my carry-on bag? Can the magical express pick it up even if it doesn't have a magical express tag on it?

    Hi Krista! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your summer is about to get magical with your soon arrival to the Walt Disney World Resort! What a great season it has been with Incredible Summer events happening and the opening of the all-new Toy Story Land in Disney's Hollywood Studios. You will have a blast!

    I have had a few trips that were planned last minute ... so last minute that I didn't have time to receive Disney's Magical Express luggage tags. I can speak from experience that, yes, Disney's Magical Express can deliver bags to your Disney Resort hotel room even without the special luggage tags.

    If the airline checks your carry-on bag, make sure to get the baggage claim ticket from them that has your baggage claim number on it. You will take this with you to Disney's Magical Express check-in desk and give it to the Cast Member assisting you. They will then add the baggage claim number to your reservation and your luggage will auto-magically appear in your Disney Resort hotel room later that day! I've never had any issues doing it this way.

    If you happen to misplace your baggage claim ticket or decide you need your bag immediately, you can feel free to claim your luggage at baggage claim, then head to Disney's Magical Express. The bag will be stored under the bus during your journey to your Disney Resort hotel and given back to you as soon as you reach your destination.

    Have a wonderful trip, Krista! Please let us know if you have any other questions!
