    On departure day, how much time should I allow to retrieve luggage from bell services in order to catch my ME bus back to the airport? How much earlier than the given ME departure time should I be back from the parks to get my luggage and still catch bus?

    Greetings Randi,

    I know you are counting down the days until your Walt Disney World vacation.  It will be here before your know it.  Disney's Magical Express is one of the great benefits of staying on property.  The buses whisk you away from the airport and back again and it could not be any more convenient.  If you have already dropped your luggage at Bell Services before leaving for the parks, it should not take any more than 15 minutes or so for them to retrieve your bags.  Depending on your resort location and the theme park you are at, I would allow about two hours to leave the theme park, travel back to your resort, retrieve your luggage and wait for the bus.  The buses are very prompt and you don't want to miss your ride back to the airport.  

    I hope you found this information helpful.  Wishing you a magical vacation!
