    Hi there, We are heading for our second visit to WDW in 19 days but this time are staying at the ASMu (last time we stayed off WDW property). Can you tell me what our process will be once we land in Orlando? ie: Magical Express, Luggage, Check in, etc

    Welcome to the staying on property experience of a Disney vacation!  I think you will really see the difference by staying at one of the great Disney resorts for it will make traveling and touring so much easier.

    Information packets are sent about 21 days ahead so yours should arrive soon. This is a program you must sign up for so please call reservations if you have not.  I am assuming you did check to see that the airline you have chosen is a partner to the plan.

    Before you depart put the Magical Express luggage tags on your bags. Please keep valuables with you in a carry on as well as anything else you might want or need when you arrive.  When you arrive in Orlando you will not need to go to baggage claim as your tagged luggage will automatically be sent to your resort.  Head to Terminal B, Level 1 where you will see the lines for check-in for Disney.  Once you have done this you will board a bus and head to your resort. This could take up to an hour as your resort might not be the first drop off but it is complementary and easy.  Once you reach your resort you will be guided into the lobby for check-in.  I suggest you do the on-line check-in before you arrive but it is not necessary.  If your room is ready you will recieve your room key and head directly there. If it is not ready you can enjoy the resort facilities, head to a park, or eat and you will get an automatic text when your room is ready for occupancy. Any carry-on luggage you might have can be checked with the Bell Staff at the resort.  About two to three hours after you arrive at the resort your luggage will magically appear in your room!
