    We arrive at 4:45 am do we need to pick up our bags and bring with us or is that close enough to 5:00am for the pick up and delivery service?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kyle! It sounds like we have a lot in common because I also arrange my travel so I can land in Orlando really early and get the magic started as soon as possible. Since you're using Disney's Magical Express, you should be at your Resort Hotel ready to start the day before most of the Theme Parks even open so I think you've done a great job planning your arrival!

    Because your flight is arriving between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., you will need to claim your own luggage at the carousel and bring it to the motorcoach with you. I definitely understand your frustration since your flight is landing just before luggage collection service begins for the day, but to make sure that everything runs smoothly and your bags get to your Resort Hotel with you, you will need to collect them yourself. When you get to the check-in point for Disney's Magical Express on Level 1 of Terminal B, you can certainly ask a Cast Member there if it's possible for your bags to join the others that are en route to your Resort Hotel beginning at 5 a.m. but it's not a guarantee that it will always be possible. When you get to where you're staying, Bell Services will be happy to safely store your luggage for you while you enjoy your day at the Theme Parks. When you receive a text or a notification through the My Disney Experience app to let you know your room is ready, you can pick up your bags where you dropped them off or you can call down to your room to have them delivered directly to you!

    I hope this answers your question, Kyle, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
