    Hi Brenda. My husband and I are not wanting to arrive late the first night. A lot of flights are 4 pm or late landing. Will we lose out on some of the benefits such as luggage delivery? We would just visit DTD. How would we get there?

    Hi Teresa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad you asked me this question because I have experienced Magical Express both with and without luggage delivery service. Be assured that no matter what time you arrive at Orlando International Airport, Magical Express will take great care of you. The only difference is you will follow different instructions for your luggage retrieval if you arrive after 10 PM.

    For all flights arriving before 10 PM, you may opt to use Disney's Magical Express Luggage Delivery Service. To utilize this service you will attach the Magical Express Luggage Delivery tags to your luggage before you check your bags in at your departing airport. That is all you need to do!  Your bags will be delivered directly to your resort hotel room approximately 3 hours after you arrive at your resort hotel. Please click the previous link to read all about the details of this service and the suggested items to bring with you on the plane.

    For flights after 10 PM, or if you wish to simply retrieve your own bags, do not affix the Magical Express Luggage tags to your checked bags. When you arrive in Orlando you will collect your own bags at baggage claim before heading to Magical Express. You and your luggage will be transported together to your resort hotel by Magical Express.

    Magical Express takes Guests to their resort hotels. Once there, you can check into your room and then decide what you want to do first on vacation. If Downtown Disney is on your agenda, then simply take complimentary Walt Disney World Resort transportation from your resort hotel to Downtown Disney.

    Have a MAGICAL vacation Teresa!
