    I want to handle my own bags to/from WDW on my 2018 vacation. Will I mess up and miss my bus if I wait to get my own bag at bag claim and then bring it to my ME bus? Will it be a prob if I don't want to check my bag with them for the return flight?

    Hi Cindy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. When my family visits Walt Disney World, there are many times we decide to grab our own bags at baggage claim and take them with us to board Disney's Magical Express. If you decide to do that, no worries! It will work out just fine time wise. There are ongoing bus departures from the airport to the Disney Resort Hotels so you will simply board the bus that is there when you arrive at the Disney's Magical Express check in counter. Also, when you return to the airport after your visit, you can take care of your bags then, as well. No problem at all!

    As you are making your plans, be sure to stop by and see us again if there is anything else we can do to help with tips and ideas. Be sure to take time to create an account on My Disney Experience where you can begin planning every part of your magical visit as the time gets closer--including Advanced Dining Reservations, Resort Hotel Reservations, FastPass+ choices and much more! It is a fantastic way to stay organized as well as not miss out on planning ahead for any part of your visit. You will love it!

    Here's wishing you a Happy New Year! Have a wonderful day.
