    You guys do a fantastic job and have helped me plan our first trip ever to WDW coming up on 11/18. My question is, we are using the Magical Express however our plane lands at 9:45pm. Should we plan on picking up our luggage and bring with us on the bus?

    Hi Justin!

    Thanks for the compliment.  We all enjoy helping guests plan their magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  I definitely recommend picking up your own luggage that night.  Just do not put the Disney Magical Express luggage tag on them!  When you get off the plane, head to the baggage area and claim your luggage.  Then bring everything with you to the DIsney's Magical Express Welcome Center.  You and your luggage will then be loaded onto the appropriate bus for your hotel.  Thus you and your luggage will both arrive at the same time at the resort.

    I think this is really the best way to go in general, unless you are arriving early or mid-morning and really don't need your luggage until much later in the day.  I always pick up my own luggage and bring it with me to the Welcome Center regardless of when I land in Orlando.

    Have a magical time!
