    39 days to go and counting!! I am a little worried about the Magical Express. I have a lay over in Atlanta. Do I just drop them off in Memphis and not worry about them until I get to my hotel or do I have to pick them up in Atlanta. We have never flown.

    Hi Sue,

    I had a friend who just traveled via plane for the first time, and she asked me the exact same question.  When you board your flight, your luggage will be tagged to arrive at your final destination.  You do not have to bother with them during your layover. 

    With magical express, you will not see your bags again until they arrive at your resort about 3 hours after your flight arrives in Orlando.  Be sure to put your Magical Express luggage tags on your bags, so that they can be identified.  Also, make sure you pack a bathing suit and any other items you may need to enjoy your vacation before your luggage is delivered to your room.

    If your flight is scheduled to arrive in Orlando after 10 p.m., you will need to collect your bags from baggage claim BEFORE boarding Magical Express.  If this is the case, do not put the special luggage tags on your bags.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
