    I've heard that when using ME from MCO, luggage usually arrives within 3 hours. Would this be 3 hours after we reach the Resort or 3 hours after we arrive at MCO? Fly in at 6:45pm and don't want a 11pm wake up for our bags. Should we get our own bags? Tks.

    Hi Daniel,

    Disney's Magical Express is really a great way to get your Disney vacation off on the right foot.  Forget the hassle of dealing with your luggage and baggage claim at the airport, and enjoy your air-conditioned ride on the DME over to your Disney Resort!

    It could be that your luggage would arrive that late, and I certainly understand that you would not want to be awakened as you are resting up for you big day ahead.  Usually, we have never had to wait more than an hour or so for our luggage to be delivered to our room - sometimes it even arrives before we do!  However, it has happened once, that we had to wait a few hours.  So, it's possible.

    I would suggest that you pack one overnight bag with the necessities you need for overnight, and ask the front desk to have Bell Services hold your luggage for you until you awaken the next morning.  That way your sleep won't be disturbed and you'll be able to have everything you need in the morning to prepare for your day in the Parks.

    Have a wonderful time!
