    If we get to MCO and see that the lines for magical express are long are we able to take a cab & our luggage will still be sent to our room or do we have to take magical express for this to happen? Do the bags go to the carousel if we take ME

    Hi Jennifer,

    I think you'll be amazed how quickly the Magical Express lines at Orlando International Airport move. Remember that a whole busload of people disappears from the line every time a new bus pulls up.  Even lines that look long disappear quickly.  I've never waited more than twenty minutes for a ride.  If I were you, I'd take the fun, complimentary Magical Express bus rather than pay for a taxi. 

    The luggage service is only for guests who ride the Magical Express.  That gives you another good reason to ride the complimentary Disney bus.  If you put your Magical Express luggage tags on your bags before you check them at your home airport, they will not be sent to the luggage carousel in Orlando.  They will go directly to your Disney resort.  If you don't put the Magical Express tags on your luggage, then you will have to pick them up yourself in Orlando.  Once you pick them up at the luggage carousel, you can put them under the Magical Express bus yourself.  I've done this several times with no problem.

    Enjoy your upcoming trip!
