    Arriving at MCO at 8:58am and are using ME. Check in isn't until 3pm, will we not get our room, luggage and esp. get to use the park until then? also can you explain the whole ME thing. Does our luggage get picked up from our room and taken to the airport?

    Hi Jennifer!  Magical Express is a very convenient service - you are going to love it!   Once you check your luggage at your departing airport (make sure your yellow luggage tags are on your luggage), you won't see it again until it arrives in your resort room.  There is no need to pick up your luggage at the airport (for arrivals before 10:00 p.m.) - just head to the Magical Express location (B side, level 1 of the Orlando airport) and cast members will help you get on the right bus headed to your resort.  Once you are at the resort, you will check in as usual.  If your room is ready - great!  If not, don't worry, you will be issued your Keys to the World cards so you can immediately begin your magical vacation.  If you leave a cell number on file when checking in, you will receive a text message when your room is ready with the room number.  When you are ready to head to your room, there is no need to stop at the front desk again.  Your luggage should arrive in your room within 3 hours of your arrival time at the airport.

    Please let me know if you have further questions on Magical Express - you are going to love this service!  Diane
