    Because we just chose to add Magical Express this week for our upcoming Feb14-19 trip, we won't have the necessary yellow tags. Will our bags still get to our resort with out any trouble? Thanks in advance for your help!

    If you are using the Magical Express service and do not have the yellow ME tags on your bags, you have two options: collect your bags yourself, or have Magical Express collect them at the airport and send them along to your hotel.

    In my mind, the first option is the safest. You simply go to the luggage carousel yourself as your normally would when arriving at an airport. Bring your bags yourself to the Magic Express check-in counter. You will be able to bring the luggage on board the bus with you. By doing this, you are 100% sure that your luggage will be going to the right place.

    If you're in a super hurry and don't want to wait at the luggage carousel, you can proceed directly to the Magical Express desk at the airport. They will ask you for the airline luggage claim receipts - the ones they gave you when you checked your bags. Magical Express will then use the airline bar codes to track down your bags and transfer them to your WDW resort hotel. This really does work; I know people who have done this successfully. However, I personally am too much of a worrier to trust the system. I'd rather get my bags myself and be assured of having my belongings with me in a timely manner.
