    Hello! My family is arriving iby plane to DW late, around 9pm, and using the Magical Express to get us and our luggage to our resort (CB). Will it take a long time for our bags to find us at our hotel at that hour?


    Recently Disney has announced that guests arriving on flights that land after 10 pm will not have baggage service. This is because the bags would arrive at the guest's hotel room so late into the evening, and they don't want to be knocking on people's doors when they are asleep. What they are telling those guests is that they should pick up their bags from the baggage carousels and bring them with them to the Magical Express area in the airport. That way the bags make the trip with them to the resort.

    While technically you are not in this group, I would suggest that you follow the same protocol. Bags can arrive up to around 3 hours later, so you could be well past bed time for members of your family if you use the Magical Express bag system.

    So pick up your own bags and take them to the bus with you. I know it would have been nice for them to carry your bags for you, but I think you will prefer having your stuff with you, and also not getting your sleep interrupted by a loud knock in the middle of the night!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
