For the Year of a Million Dreams promotion, Disney is offering some amazing perks for guests staying at the Walt Disney World Resorts. One of the more popular perks is the Magical Express baggage handling services. Let’s imagine two scenerios. First scenerio…after a long flight, you arrive to the Orlando International Airport ready to get to Disney World. You have to go down to Baggage Claim and wait for your luggage and then tote your luggage to the transportation. Then you have to carry you luggage to resort check in and then you have to drag your luggage all of the way to your room. Does this sound like a fun way to start your vacation?
Now imagine, arriving to the Orlando International Airport and just hopping on the Disney Transportation to your resort. After you check into your resort, your luggage magically appears in your room. This second scenerio sounds much better, doesn’t it?
Disney’s Magical Express baggage handling does just that! Once you arrive to the Orlando International Airport, you check in with the Magical Express Desk and then hop on the Disney Transportation to your resort. Once you arrive to your resort, you check in. After check in, your luggage will show up in your room about 2-3 hours later. It is an easy way to start your Disney World vacation.
For your trip home, you can even check your luggage at your Disney Resort instead of checking your luggage at the airline desk. Disney partners with several airlines to provide this extra service. If you are flying on AirTran, Alaska Air, American Airlines, Contiental, Delta, JetBlue, Northwest, United/Ted, or US Airways you can check your luggage and get your boarding passes right at your Disney Resort instead of at the airport. This will save you an extra step waiting in more lines at the airport. This extra service is only for domestic flights. If you are an International guest, you will still have to check in at the airport.
For this resort airline check in, stop by the Magical Express Desk in the lobby of your resort at least 3 hours prior to your flight departure time to receive your boarding pass and check your luggage. You will need to show a government ID like a passport or drivers licence plus your resort Key to the World Card to take advantage of this service. This desk is open daily from 5 AM-1 PM at your Disney Resort.
