Getting There: Disney's Magical Express
I love traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort because I don't have to worry at all about arranging for transportation, not only do they drive me around on property with the internal bus system, but they take me from the airport right to the front door of my resort! Guests staying "on property" at any of the Disney owned resorts receive complimentary transportation from Orlando International Airport to their hotel in the form of "Disney's Magical Express." It's one of those special perks of being a WDW Resort guest.
Yes, a bus is nice, but Disney always has to go one step further. For guests arriving at Orlando International Airport between 5:00AM and 10:00PM, Disney's Magical Express includes complete luggage handling.
When you make a Disney Magical Express reservation, you give the agent all of your flight information. Roughly a month before your vacation, you will get your Magical Express package in the mail. Included inside are your transportation vouchers, and some very special luggage tags. The bright yellow tags are have a barcode with your resort and flight information. By placing the tag around your luggage handles before checking it at your departure point that little yellow tag makes sure that the next time you see your bag is in your hotel room that evening.
Arriving in Orlando you simply head right to the Magical Express Welcome Center, no fussing about the baggage claim needed. Friendly Cast Members will greet you, check you in, and direct you to the correct line to take the bus to your resort. Big, friendly, comfortable buses with Mickey's smiling face on the side take you to your resort. While you're on your way to this happy place, Disney will collect your bags and deliver them right to your room before the end of the night. Frequently, the bags even get there before you do, but I always pack a change of clothes in my carry on, just in case.

By taking care of my ground transportation and all the luggage handling Disney alleviates stress and lets me relax to enjoy my Disney World vacation.
