    My flight comes in at 8:40pm, there are extra magic hours at epcot from 9-11pm. I'm signed up for magical express, can I take a cab to epcot and they pick up my luggage instead of riding the bus so we can take advantage of the extra magic hours?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ramona!

    Disney's Magical Express is one of my favorite perks of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. You don't have to worry about getting a ride from the airport or figuring transportation into your budget because it's all taken care of already! All you need to do after you call to make your reservation is attach your yellow luggage tags to your bags so they can be collected at the airport and delivered to your room while you board the enchanted motorcoach.

    When it comes to timing, I'll be honest and say I think it would be a pretty tight squeeze to get to Extra Magic Hours at Epcot the night that you arrive. When you land, you'll need to use airport transportation to get to the main terminal and either pick up your luggage at the baggage carousel or check-in for Disney's Magical Express, depending on whether you've decided to arrange your own ride or not. In order for your bags to be transported directly to your Resort Hotel room you will need to ride Disney's Magical Express yourself, so if you choose to get a taxi your bags will have to travel with you that way so make sure to decide what you'd like to do before you attach those yellow luggage tags to your bags. If I booked a flight that arrived at the same time as you, I would take advantage of the baggage delivery and use Disney's Magical Express so I could get checked-in and get a good night's rest, because there are Extra Magic Hours scheduled the next morning at Magic Kingdom Park!

    I hope this answers your question, Ramona, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
