When you stay at a Walt Disney World resort, complimentary
transportation from the Orlando Airport to your resort is included.
Disney will even pick up your luggage at baggage claim for you! When
you arrive at the Orlando airport, simply go to the Magical Express
Desk. Hand them your boarding pass and you will be on your way. If,
for some reason, do not have luggage tags or a boarding pass, it's
no worries. All your information will be in their computer system to
pull up. Hand them the baggage claim checks from your local airport
so they may retrieve your bags. Your luggage will arrive safely in
your resort hotel approximately 2 hours later. Be sure to pack any
items that you can not be without in your carry on. After your
Disney vacation is over, Magical Express will bring you (and your
suitcases!) back to the airport for your return home.
