    Happy Holidays!We leave in 8 days and my question is about magic express.In our paper work it says THEY pick up our luggage, but I have read it may be better to do it ourselves.Is it ok to get your own luggage and bring it to them? THANK YOU!!!!

    Congratulations on your upcoming holiday trip to WDW!

    Before you leave home, you'll need to decide if you'd rather bring your luggage on the Magical Express bus or have it delivered by DME.

    If you want the luggage delivered, you will put the DME luggage tags on your bags before checking it in at your local airport.

    Unless we are renting a car, I like to have DME deliver our bags. It saves having to wait at Baggage Claim. Some guests arriving late at night, however, like to claim their bags before boarding the DME bus so that they have their luggage before going to bed that evening.

    If you go to Baggage Claim, do so before heading to the Disney Welcome Center desk. The bus driver will then place your large bags in the cargo area for transportation to the resort. At the resort, you can either lug your bags yourself or have Bell Services assist you.
