    I am arriving at Disny by DME on May 24.My flight will arrive around 5:30 pm. Is it be better to pick up my luggage myself or let Disney take care of it? How long does it take for luggage to arrive at your room and do I need to be in the room at the time?

    Hi Randall,

    Personally, I prefer Disney's Magical Express taking care of my luggage! It's wonderful being able to exit the plane and take the bus to my Walt Disney World resort without having to worry about handling bags.

    I would advise packing anything that you may need immediately in your carry-on bag. The luggage typically arrives within three hours. Bags are brought directly to your room and left inside. You will not need to be there. My family is usually at dinner or the pool when our luggage arrives. Gratuity is included with this complimentary service. So, no additional tipping is necessary.

    If you decide to get your luggage, you should go to Baggage Claim at the Orlando International Airport first. Then proceed to the Disney Magical Express desk for your bus assignment to your resort. If the driver helps with your bags, it's recommended to tip $1 per bag.

    Have a wonderful WDW vacation!
