    Hi - we are using the shuttle service to wdw how does it work with carry on suitcases can we have those delivered to our room and do we have to go and get our checked bags and bring them to the Disney shuttle?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this question to our panel. Disney's Magical Express transportation is so convenient!

    After you have booked your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation, be sure that you have registered for Disney's Magical Express transportation with your travel agent, online or over the phone. A few weeks prior to your departure, you will receive your luggage tags in the mail. Secure these tags to your luggage prior to arriving at the airport.

    With Disney's Magical Express luggage delivery service, your luggage will be delivered to your room as long as your flight arrives between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. It could take up to three hours for it to arrive in your room, however, so I always suggest that guests keep carryon luggage with them. You should keep all valuables, medications and your MagicBands with you at all times in your carryon bags.

    If you do not receive your luggage tags in the mail prior to your trip, you can still use the luggage delivery service. As long as you arrive on a domestic flight, simply head directly to Disney's Magical Express transportation counters and provide a cast member with your bag claim number(s) and resort hotel confirmation number (which should be linked to your MagicBand). She or he will make sure your luggage is claimed and delivered to your room.

    We have not always used the luggage delivery service or the resort airline check-in services. Now I cannot imagine vacationing without them.

    Jennifer, I know that you will enjoy Disney's Magical Express!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
