    Our flight will be arriving at about 9:45 at night, how long will it take for our luggage to be delivered to our room?

    I assume that you're asking about how long it will take the Magical Express service bring your luggage from Orlando International airport to your WDW hotel. The official word on this is that it can take up to three hours to receive your bags. It could be slightly less than this, or it could be a bit more.

    You should also know that for flights with scheduled arrival times after 10:00 p.m., the Magical Express service now requires that guests collect their own luggage from the baggage carousel and bring it with them to the bus. The luggage will travel with them on the bus to their hotel.

    With a 9:45 arrival, you are not required to get your own bags. However, I personally would feel most comfortable if I did get my own luggage. I'd like to avoid the strong possibility of my bags arriving at the hotel after midnight. I'd rather get to bed early and start my day in the parks fresh in the morning.

    If you decide to collect your own bags from the luggage carousel, then please do NOT put the yellow Magical Express tags on your bags.
