    We have a flight out of MCO at 7:15pm on a Monday. What time is recommended for us to have our bags down to the lobby for the magical express? Thanks in advance as we plan out trip!

    Hi Moira,

    I see that your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation is less than two months away! Hopefully you have your FastPass+ selections made and have a countdown going for all of the magic and fun! It won't be long before all of your Disney dreams are coming true! SO exciting!

    While I'm always a bit sad to see our Disney vacations come to an end, Disney's Magical Express makes everything easy peasy. You'll receive a letter on your Disney Resort hotel room door the day prior to your departure with specific details for your motorcoach. While always subject to change, rides are being scheduled approximately three hours prior to domestic flight times, and you'll want to be present and waiting with all of your personal belongings at least fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled ride. So for a 7:15 p.m. flight, you'll want to be all set to go somewhere around 4:00 p.m. Did you know that you may use the handy dandy Resort Airline Check-In service for select flights and grab your boarding pass and check your bags right there at your Disney Resort hotel? That definitely beats having to lug heavy suitcases through the airport once you arrive! Also, don't forget that you'll be considered a Guest of your Disney Resort hotel for the entire day, even after the official check-out time, so feel free to enjoy another day of swimming or activities. Whether you spend your day enjoying your Resort hotel or visiting the theme parks one more time to squeeze out every ounce of magic and fun, Bell Services will be happy to hang on to your bags for you. If you do leave bags with Bell Services, just don't forget to factor in a little bit more time so that you can grab all of your belongings before your Disney's Magical Express motorcoach arrives!

    Thanks so much for visiting us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Moira, and please feel free to keep your great questions coming as you're thinking through the details of your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
