    Flying Westjet in Van w/connect flight in TO to Orlando.Do we just put the ME tags on in Van and don’t have to worry about them again until they arrive at our resort at Disney?Customs?Arrive1 pm, do u think it wud be long wait if we take our luggage on bus

    Thanks for the question Debi! Since you are connecting in Toronto, you will be lead to a special baggage claim area, where you will be required to pick up your bags and then go through US Customs. Once you go through Customs, your bags will be checked right through to Orlando. If you decide you want to have your bags checked on Magical Express, then be sure the tags are on your luggage before you send them off in Toronto. You can put these tags on in Vancouver.

    Once you arrive at the Orlando airport, simply follow the signs to the Magical Express counter, and off you go! Your bags will be delivered to your resort room withing approximately three hours. Be sure to bring some essentials in your carry-on so you can start enjoying your vacation right away. We always pack bathing suits, flip flops, sunscreen and a change of clothes.

    If you decide to pick up your luggage at the airport, be sure you do NOT attach the Magical Express tags. I must admit it's been years since I've picked up bags at the Orlando airport, although generally speaking, the wait is usually anywhere from 15- 30 minutes. The driver will assist you in storing your bags under the bus, and then you'll have everything with you when you check in at your resort.

    Have a fantastic vacation Debi! Write back if I can help with anything else!
