    The only flight that was available on our arrival day is bringing us in at 9:00 pm. Is there anything I should know about arriving this late?

    Hi Bridget,

    The biggest piece of advice I can give you when arriving in the late evening is to make sure you have anything you need for your nighttime routine with you in your carry-on luggage. We pack a bag with all of our pajamas, toothbrushes, medicines, ect and keep it with us on the plane.

    Disney's Magical Express may take up to three hours from when your plane arrives to deliver your luggage to your room. By keeping our nighttime essentials in our carry-on bags, we can get the kids settled into bed and not have to wait for our suitcases to arrive. We want everyone rested and ready to dive head-first into the magic the next morning. 

    Other than that, you'll be good to go! You may even find queues for check-in to be shorter and your room will be ready when you arrive. There are definitely some benefits to arriving later in the evening.

    Please come back and see us again real soon, Bridget.

    Have a magical day,
