    I asked some questions last year and didn't answer, so I'm asking again. I'm planning to use the ME, but not the lugagge tags; in this case is it necessary to book it in advance? how many days prior to my arrival? THANKS, Alicia.

    Hi Alicia, As soon as you have your flight booked, contact Disney with all your flight information and names of guests in your party.  Prior to your vacation, Disney will send you a packet with your vouchers which you will need when you check in for Magical Express bus at Orlando International Airport.

    If you do not plan to use the luggage tags, please note that you will have to retrieve your own bags from baggage claim, get them on the bus, and take them to your room.

    The day before you are scheduled for check-out, you will receive a letter in your room from Disney's Magical Express.  It will list all of the names in your party, your flight number, and your pick-up time at your hotel (usually 3 hours prior to your flight, 4 hours for international flights.)  Luggage service is not included for your return trip to the airport, so bring all your luggage and personal items with you.

    Plan to be on time to the Magical Express Bus Stop.  These busses stay on a very tight schedule.  Have your vouchers or letter available, as they do check these before you board the bus for your return.

    Enjoy your vacation!
