    This panel rocks! I'm addicted. :) Can we use ME upon arrival, but taxi to leave? Heard ME for leaving requires we be ready really early. For a Fri. 11am flight, could it be faster to take a taxi than go on ME? Could luggage still go via ME, if we go taxi?

    You can use Disney's Magical Express transportation only one way either to or from the airport. You are certainly welcome to take ME to Walt Disney World, but take a cab back to the airport.

    For your general knowledge, Magical Express pick-ups are almost always three hours before flight time. So if you use ME, with an 11:00 flight, you will likely have an 8:00 pick-up.

    You are not allowed to have a luggage-only transfer from the airport to the hotel. If you take a cab TO WDW, you can not have your bags take ME without you. However, if you take a cab FROM WDW to the airport, you can send your bags ahead to the airport using the Resort Airline Check-in at the hotel. You can take the cab and the bags can take Disney transportation. You should also know that if you choose to use Resort Airline Check-in, you must check your bags at least three hours prior to flight time.

    Have a great trip.
