When staying at a Disney Resort you have the option to take the free shuttle bus to and from the airport. Since I am attempting an economical trip next week I decided to stay at Pop Century and take the Magical Express.
You must register first. I did this directly through Expedia when I booked my trip. There was a link that took me directly to the Disney site. I registered and a week later I received my packet.
One of the perks of this service is that you can check your luggage at the airport and it will arrive in your resort room when you get there. Disney does all of the transport work. It may take up to 3 hours to arrive after you check in however. You do not have to be present for your luggage to be delivered to your room. I usually don’t check my luggage but this trip I am going to try this option out. I’ll pack a clean shirt and all of my electronics in my carry on. I’m due to check in early. If my room isn’t ready, I’ll leave my bag with concierge and head to Magic Kingdom.
I recently announced that I would be going back to Disney World on Sept 20th-24. That trip is booked, paid for and a done deal. Well I found out that my parents will be there for a week, leaving two days before I arrive. So naturally I thought about what I can do to see them. We haven’t been in Walt Disney World together since I was 9.
