    We are planning on flying for the first time to disney next year. How does magical express work? I am worrried about luggage getting mixed up since we would probably have more bags then luggage tags.

    Hi Rachel,

    Disney's Magical Express is perfectly named because it is simply magical! Once you have your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation and your flight information you can call (407) 939-1936 to make your reservation with Magical Express. A few weeks before your trip, you will receive Magical Express information and luggage tags in the mail. You can request extra luggage tags when you call Magical Express. 

    When you leave home for the airport, attach the Magical Express luggage tags to all bags you check. Your carry on bags will not need Magical Express tags because they will stay with you. If you don't have enough luggage tags on your day of travel, you can provide Magical Express with your baggage claim numbers and they will locate and transport your luggage. When you arrive at Orlando International Airport go directly to Disney's Magical Express. Your luggage will arrive at your resort within a few hours! Magic!

    Remember to keep your MagicBands in your carry on bags. You will need them to board the Magical Express. If you decide you don't want to wait for your checked bags, do not put the Magical Express luggage tags on them. You will have to go to baggage claim and get your bags before going to Magical Express. 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let us know if we can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
