    Hello . This is my first time coming to Disney . I know they said my luggage will be delivered to my room as long as it has the luggage tag how long after you arrive at the hotel does your luggage get to the hotel ?

    Hi, there!

     Laura, I am SO excited for you. There is nothing more magical than a Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I can't wait for you to experience that unique magic firsthand!

     My favorite tip for first-time visitors is to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, so I'm glad to see you'll be doing just that! You will love Disney's Magical Express service. You'll be magically whisked away to your Resort hotel and your checked luggage will follow shortly behind you. If your flight lands between 5:00 AM - 10:00 PM, it may take up to three hours for your luggage to be delivered to your room.

     I recommend packing your carry-on bag with the items you'll need for the time you are without your checked luggage. We always spend our arrival day exploring our Resort hotel and enjoying the pool, so we pack our swimsuits, sunscreen, toiletries and a change of clothes in our backpacks. 

     Did you know you don't need to be present to receive your luggage delivery from Disney's Magical Express? Once you arrive to your Resort hotel, you are welcome to head out for a destination or stay and explore the property like we do, without having to worry about receiving your checked bags. We often return to our Resort hotel room from the pool to find our luggage there waiting for us.

     Be sure to use the My Disney Experience planning tool to link family and friends, make FastPass+ selections, book dining reservations and add plans to your vacation itinerary. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Laura. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
