    we are flying into orlando airport on 11-30-11 ( i can't wait!!) -on spirit airlines. Does the magical exress take the luggage that is checked or do we have to pick it up from baggage claim and bring it to the bus so it will arrive at the hotel? thanks!

    Hey Holly,

    I can feel your excitement through the computer! What a great way to bring in the holiday season. Around 30 days prior to your trip you will receive yellow luggage tags in the mail (one per person). If these tags are on your luggage at your departure airport, your bags will be magically transported all the way to your hotel room in Orlando. You will bypass baggage claim in Orlando and go straight to Concourse B Level 1 to the Magical Express area to be taken by bus to your hotel.

    Okay, here is the catch. Your bags may not arrive to your hotel room until up to 3 hours after you arrive. If you are going to use Magical Express for your luggage, take necessities with you in a carry on to have until your luggage arrives. If you think this may not work for you, don't use the luggage tags, retrieve your bags at baggage claim in Orlando, and take them with you on the bus to your hotel. The Cast Members on the buses will load your bags under the bus for you and have them ready when you disembark at your hotel. Your decision is a matter of personal preference and works just fine either way.

    Personally, I like to take my luggage with me, so I pack one bag that is not to cumbersome for me to handle on my trip to the hotel. Your trip will be filled with pixie dust either way!
