    We are arriving at the Orlando airport on 4/6/12 at 11:00 a.m. Does the Magical Express have long lines at Easter? How long for your luggage to be delivered? Is there a quicker way to get to the AllStar Movie resort? Can we bring our luggage on the bus?

    Hi Mary!

    Sometimes Disney's Magical Express has long lines in the Welcome Center, but it is not too often.  What really makes the trip long is sometimes a bus will stop at multiple resorts to let guests off and that takes time, especially if your resort is at the end!  You really don't know as it really depends how many guests show up at the same time as you and what resorts they might be headed to!  I usually tell guests to plan on Disney's Magical Express taking about 90 minutes to get you to Walt Disney World, though it almost always happens faster than that.  To give you something to compare to, it takes about 30 minutes by car.

    With regards to your luggage, it can take several hours for your luggage to magically appear in your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  If you want your luggage to travel with you on the Disney's Magical Express bus then do not put the special luggage tags on them.  Instead, go to the baggage carousel yourself and pick up your luggage; then bring your luggage with you to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center.  Then you and your luggage will be loaded on the bus together.  When you get to your resort, you can just bring your luggage to your room or, if your room is not ready, leave them with Bell Services.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
