    I need mom's advice! If we arent arriving at MCO until 9:20 pm, should we claim our own bags so we will have it when we arrive at ASM? With kids I wasnt sure if we should take the chance of them being woken up 3 hrs later when our bags would be delivered.

    Hi Katy!!!

    We love Disney's Magical Express Complimentary Bus Service to and from Orlando International Airport!!!  It is such a nice, added luxury to not have to worry about transportation when on a Walt Disney World Vacation!!

    Based on your arrival time to Orlando International, I think grabbing your own bags would be a great idea.  This may add an additional 15-20 minutes to wait for your bags at Baggage Claim, but you will be certain that your children won't be woken up when they deliver your bags, which can easily be two to three hours after you arrival to Disney's All Star Movies Resort.  

    Just a tip if you are going to grab your own bags.  Be sure not to put the luggage tags on your luggage that you receive in the mail from the Magical Express.  If you put those tags on your luggage, you will never see your luggage at the Baggage Claim as it will be pulled and put on a special truck that is headed to the Walt Disney World Resort.  

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions!!

    Have a magical trip!!
