Disney's Magical Express transportation

    Can Magical Express take my luggage from MCO to my hotel if I am not traveling on the bus? I'd prefer to take uber directly to a park.

    Hello Maria!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Taking Disney's Magical Express from Orlando International Airport to kick-off my Walt Disney World Resort vacation is one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Resort Hotel.

    While I believe Disney's Magical Express to be just as, if not more, efficient and cost-effective than traveling via alternate transportation(especially during rush hours), I understand the appeal of heading out of the airport as quickly as possible.

    When your baggage arrives at Orlando International Airport with Disney's Magical Express luggage tags, it is pulled from the traditional baggage carousel and held in an area reserved especially for said baggage.  It remains in this area until a Cast Member checks you into Disney's Magical Express on Level B1 of the airport.

    Unfortunately, Guests must board a motorcoach for Disney's Magical Express to verify and transport any luggage they receive at Orlando International Airport. If you plan on using alternate transportation, be sure to collect your luggage from the baggage carousel and do not attach the luggage tags.

    One of the reasons baggage arrives a few hours later than Guests is due to the fact that it is purposely held until Guests are about to board their motorcoach to depart for Walt Disney World Resort.  This way your baggage does not leave the airport(barring any unforeseen circumstances) without you leaving as well.

    If you have not already done so, you may book Disney's Magical Express online or by calling (407)939-1936.

    Happy Travels!
