    How far is the Magic Express pick up area from the baggage claim area at the airport? Trying to figure out how much time it would add if we pick up our own bags....

    Hi Carrie,

    If you collect your own bags from the luggage carousel, the main time addition would be waiting for your bags to arrive on the carousel, not the walking from baggage claim to the Magical Express check-in desk.

    There are two areas of baggage claim, assigned by airline. Magical Express is within a few dozen yards of the B-Side baggage claim. It's maybe a 2-3 minute walk.

    If your luggage comes in on the A-side baggage claim, it's about a 3-5 minute walk. It's really not far and there are lots of folks that can help point you in the right direction.

    Personally, I almost always get my bags myself. I just prefer having access to my belongings as soon as I arrive, but really it's up to you.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
