    Our flight is scheduled to land at MCO at 5:10 am. If it arrives early (before 5 am), what happens to our checked bags with the yellow tags? Do we wait at baggage or will they still be transported for us since the flight was scheduled to land after 5 am?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel, Joshua!

    Disney's Magical Express® is just one of the many pixie-dusted benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel. We absolutely LOVE it! Nothing says you are on vacation like riding the motor coach and passing underneath the entrance sign at the place Where Dreams Come True.

    Disney's Magical Express® includes complimentary luggage delivery from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel room. For flights landing between 5:00 AM and 10:00 PM, it generally takes up to 3 hours – after arriving at your Disney Resort hotel – for the luggage to be delivered to the room. Since your flight is scheduled to land at 5:10 AM, and factoring in travel time on the motor coach too, I would expect your luggage to be delivered to your Disney Resort hotel no later than 9:10 AM. Even if your flight should land a bit earlier than originally scheduled, if your luggage is labeled with Disney's Magical Express® tags, it will be delivered to your room.

    We like flying early too and have had our luggage waiting for us upon entering the room more than a few times. I always make sure to pack our carry-on bags with the following items: at least one change of clothes, underwear, swimwear, pajamas, toothbrush, travel-size toothpaste, medications, valuables and anything we might need immediately upon arrival. That way, we can have some flexibility in case of any unforeseen delays. I also recommend packing your MagicBands in the carry-on, or even wearing them, so you won't be tempted to store them in the checked luggage.

    I hope this was helpful information, Joshua. Please come back soon with more Disney vacation planning questions.

    Wishing you a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort!
