Disney’s Magical Express Information and Luggage Tags
Once you’ve reserved Disney’s Magical Express, we will mail you details and luggage tags approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to your arrival. After receiving the tags, please attach them to each bag you would like Disney’s Magical Express to deliver to your Resort hotel room.
If you haven’t received your luggage tags by the time you head to your local airport—and are scheduled to arrive in Orlando between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM—there’s no need to worry. Simply provide your baggage claim numbers to a representative at the Disney’s Magical Express service location at the airport and we’ll take care of the rest.
If your touchdown in Orlando is overnight, between 10:00 PM and 5:00 AM, you’ll need to retrieve your checked items as our luggage service is not available during those hours. Please see the procedure in the Arrival section below.
Do not place any Disney’s Magical Express luggage tags on any items you plan to personally retrieve from the baggage claim area and bring with you on the motorcoach.
Pack a Carry-On Bag
If you plan to take advantage of the complimentary luggage delivery service of Disney’s Magical Express—for flights arriving between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM—be sure to keep any medications, valuables and items essential to your first day at Walt Disney World Resort with you.
