New Information Regarding Luggage Delivery from Disney’s Magical Express

New Information Regarding Luggage Delivery from Disney’s Magical Express

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

I know when my vacation at Walt Disney World has began when I step aboard Disney’s Magical Express at Orlando International Airport, and especially when I arrive to my Disney resort, my luggage magical appears in my room.

This morning we received new information and changes that are soon coming regarding this complimentary service.

As my vacation also begins with this complimentary service, the end of my vacation also receives this complimentary service provided Disney’s Magical Express. Although, I like to call it the “tragicalexpress” when my trip is over!

Beginning July 16, 2020, luggage delivery service will not be provided for guests that arriving to and departing from Orlando International Airport.

Guests who choose to use Disney’s Magical Express will be responsible for picking up any of their checked luggage from the airport’s baggage claim area and taking it to the motor coach, so that it can be loaded for transport to their Disney Resort hotel.

Guests and their luggage will have to travel with them to their Disney Resort hotel at their arrival.

However, upon arrival to the guest’s Disney Resort hotel, luggage assistance will be available at the front of Disney Resort hotels.

Additionally, luggage storage and/or transport help to the room will be available to guests for assistance.

At the end of a guest’s stay, upon departure from a Disney Resort hotel, guests must take their luggage with them and load them onto the motor coach.

This allows for guests to check in with their airline upon arrival at the airport with their luggage.

At this time, resort airline check-in is unavailable until further notice.

Transportation and Merchandise Updates for Next Month's Disney World Reopening

Guests who will be utilizing Disney’s Magical Express will receive a notification regarding these new changes prior from departure before arriving at Walt Disney World.

Not very happy about this. This was one of the “little things” that made staying at a Disney resorts special. At this point, I just feel like my whole trip is being hacked away piece by piece. Free dining, gone. Park hopper, gone. Character meals, gone. Resort, not open, switched. Halloween party, gone. Magic Express luggage pick up, gone. I’m trying to hang in there and get back “home” but every additional infarct is making me rethink.

This was an AMAZING perk. I’m bummed about this. I hope it’s only temporary. MCO can be a crazy place, now we have to stand in a dis functional line ? Just going to TSA/ security is stressful enough.

This is not new for international guests. Disney stopped the "Yellow Luggage Tags" and made picking up your luggage and taking it to the DME coach the normal routine and has been the same for quite a few years now.

Disney will never be the same. They will take away one thing after the other. The magic is disappearing!

Let's just hope its due to the pandemic, and reducing the handling of luggage by others. I feel this service will be restored in the future. I ALWAYS used the luggage and check-in services and it was truly magical.
