    We plan on using DME. Our flight arrives at 7:30PM. I am unsure if we should use the luggage tags. I understand that our luggage could take up to 3 hours to be delivered to our resort. Should we just collect our luggage before boarding the bus?

    Hello Sharil!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. One of the reasons I love Disney's Magical Express so much is that we don't have to worry about waiting at baggage claim and collecting our luggage.  It allows my family to head straight to the Most Magical Place on Earth as soon as we arrive at Orlando International Airport.  

    Yes, sometimes luggage delivery can take a few hours. Because it does sometimes take a little while I always pack a rolling carry-on bag with anything my family is going to need until our luggage arrives.  If we arrive early in the day this includes swimsuits and sunscreen. If we arrive in the evening I pack pajamas and toothbrushes.  It's totally up to your family if you would like to collect your luggage. If you plan on falling asleep soon after arriving at your Resort hotel you may want to stop and get your luggage so that you are not awoken by the Cast Member who will deliver the luggage to your room. If you know you are going to be awake and exploring I say use the yellow delivery tags.  You do not have to be present when your luggage is delivered so you could go for a late night swim, or head to Downtown Disney and do a little shopping and enjoy a delicious meal. It's totally up to you.

    We would love to continue to help you plan your magical adventure, if you have any other questions please don't hesitate to send them our way.

    Have a Disney Day,
