Disney's Magical ExrpessGENERAL INFORMATION
Disney's Magical Express is an airport transportation service available to select Walt Disney World © resorts that offers hassle free transportation to and from the Orlando International Airport for Guests and their luggage. The magical part of this service is that if Guests utilize the Disney's Magical Express luggage tags provided to them, they do not have to claim their luggage when they arrive at the Orlando International Airport. Disney's Magical Express claims the luggage on their behalf and delivers it to their Walt Disney World © Resort room.
All Walt Disney World © resorts offer this service for Guests arriving at the Orlando International Airport with the exception of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, Shades of Green, and Downtown Disney © Area resorts. This service is also not offered for Disney's Vero Beach Resort and Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort.

Once they have completed this process they will proceed to the Disney Welcome Center located in the main Terminal building on the A side on Level 1. Their luggage will be transferred to the Baggage Claim area, where Disney will collect it if tagged with Disney's Magical Express luggage tags.
