    For Magical Express going from the hotel to the airport on your departure day, I know the pick-up time is about 3 hours before flight time, but I was wondering if luggage has to be downstairs earlier than that? Just trying to figure out morning plans...

    Hi Elizabeth!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Disney's Magical Express is such a convenient way to travel between Walt Disney World Resort and Orlando International Airport.  You are correct; your Magical Express pick-up time will be approximately three hours prior to your scheduled flight departure time.  A transportation notice with your departure time will be delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room the day before your departure.  It is recommended that you be at the pick-up area in front of your Resort Hotel at least 15 minutes prior to your pick-up time.  Just look for the sign with Disney's Magical Express logo.  If you will be bringing your luggage with you to the airport on the motorcoach, there is no need to bring it any earlier.  The driver will load your luggage in the storage compartment under the bus right as you board.  If you are flying on a participating airline and would like to take advantage of Resort Airline Check-In, the desk is open from 5:00 am to 12:00 noon daily.  This FANTASTIC service works just like curbside check-in at the airport, but the curb is right at your Disney Resort Hotel!  I love taking care of checking my luggage and then enjoying the last few hours of my Disney vacation.  You can also drop any carry-on bags with Bell Services and retrieve them before you board Disney's Magical Express.

    Guests are responsible for bringing their own luggage to Resort Airline Check-In or Disney's Magical Express.  If you need assistance with your luggage, give Bell Services a call.

    I hope I have answered your questions, Elizabeth.  Please feel free to stop by the Moms Panel again if you need any additional information as you plan your vacation.  Enjoy!
