    We are arriving in Orlando via air at 9:45 p.m. We are taking the Magical Express. Should we still use the baggage service at this time of night or just get our own bags and bring them to the express?

    Hi, Julia!  So, here's the deal with baggage service and Magical Express.  If your flight lands prior to 10 PM, you can have Magical Express cast members pick up your bags for you.  Since your flight does come in early enough, you are absolutely entitled to use this service.


    If I'm coming in that late at night, I usually want to hit the resort, check in, and meet my pillow.  I like to get up early the  next morning to get my vacation started.  You may have to wait a few hours at your resort for Magical Express to bring the bags to your room.  

    By the time you get from the airport to your resort, it is already probably going to be going on 10:30.  To wait another couple of hours could mean a pretty late night.

    I would probably just grab the bags myself at that hour, so that when I arrived at the hotel, I could get ready for bed.  

    You can decide which works best for you.  If you're a night owl, or don't have plans to be up and out early the next morning, let Magical Express do the work for you.  If you like to hit the ground running the next morning, bringing your own bags will let you get a good night's sleep so you can race out the door the next day.

    Have an absolutely magical vacation!
