    Due to timing and flights, if we choose to arrive at MCO the night before but still want to take DME the next day can we do that? Do we just go to DME with our luggage the next morning? And will the hotel still hold our luggage so we can enjoy the parks?

    Hi there Katherine! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'd be happy to assist you with another great vacation planning question.

    Arriving at Orlando International Airport is always exciting. It means I am oh so close to reaching the Most Magical Place on Earth. An evening flight is a great option, as it allows you to start fresh at the theme parks in the morning after a good night of snoozing like Sleeping Beauty. Did you know there is even a hotel inside the airport? My family stayed at the Hyatt Regency Orlando Airport one trip after a particularly late arrival. I am happy to report that you will be able to take advantage of Disney's Magical Express® airport transportation the morning after an evening flight. Hakuna Matata!

    When calling to make your party's arrangements for Disney's Magical Express®, be sure to share your plans with the Cast Member on the line. Upon landing at Orlando International Airport, you will need to retrieve your checked luggage from baggage claim, then fall asleep with visions of Cinderella Castle sparkling in your dreams. In the morning simply report to Disney's Magical Express®, located in the Main Terminal Building Side B, Level 1 in the Ground Transportation area. Be sure to have your MagicBands ready to go! They are your ticket aboard this whimsical transportation system. 

    After enjoying the onboard video, you will arrive at your Walt Disney Resort Hotel where you can check your luggage with Bell Services. Be sure to take any bare necessities for the theme parks with you, and let the vacation begin! Don't forget to complete Online Check-In for your Resort Hotel to receive a text message or e-mail when your room is ready. 

    Katherine, I hope this helps as you continue to think about flying off to Neverland. If there is anything else we can do for you as your vacation approaches, please come back and see us again. We're all EARS!

    See ya real soon,
