    Teresa Asked

    We are travelling from South Africa in 55 days - 1st trip - luggage tags are not posted and we have booked Magic Express - do we need to collect our own luggage and how do we find Magical Express. Fly Johannesburg - Atlanta - Orlando. Thanks

    Hi there Teresa,

    My you are traveling quite a distance to visit Walt Disney World!  You are in for a real treat, as Walt Disney World is the place where dreams come true and a most magical adventure awaits your family!

    Your Magical Express Welcome Packet and luggage tags should arrive in the mail about 10-15 days prior to your arrival date so if you haven't seen them by then, I suggest calling Magical Express directly at (407) 939-6244 to confirm the status.

    The yellow Magical Express tags should be affixed to your checked luggage and when you land in Orlando, there is no need to stop by baggage claim, as your luggage will be collected for you and will magically appear in your resort room later in the day.

    Once you arrive at Orlando International Airport, and pass through security, a Disney Cast Member will be waiting to greet you (Look for the big Mickey gloves waving)!  This Cast Member will direct you to the Disney Welcome Center where you will register your family before boarding your Magical Express coach for nonstop service to the Disney World Resort!

    Hope this helps, and please let me know if I can be of further assistance!
