    We are coming to WDW in a few weeks and are using the Magical Express. Can we still retrieve our luggage at baggage claim and carry it to the ME pick up? I have heard that, if you don't, it could take up to 5 hours to get your luggage.

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for writing.  In my experience, your luggage will arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort within three hours of you arriving at Orlando International Airport.  I have used Magical Express many times, and have never had to wait more than three hours.  If you do need your luggage before that, you are welcome to pick up your luggage from the baggage carousel (just be sure not to stick the yellow tags on your bags!) and bring them along to the Magical Express queue.  You'll be able to stow your luggage underneath the bus and will have immediate access to them when you arrive.  Either way, have a wonderful trip!
