    Our plane doesn't arrive at airport until 10:30pm on a Sunday night. Should we pick up our baggage ourselves and take it with us on the Magical Expressbus to our resort, or just let Disney do the delivery? Will it be hours before our bags are delivered?

    Others would probably disagree with me, but at that hour of the night, I would pick up my own bags at the airport. If Magical Express picks up your bags and brings them to the hotel for you, it will be at least two and as many as five hours after your arrival in Orlando that the bags show up at the hotel. You would then have two choices: have them held in the lobby until the morning (in which case you have to track the bags down in the morning) or have them delivered directly to your room (in which case you will be woken up in the middle of the night).

    If you think you will be desperate to get to the hotel, and don't care about being woken up or getting your bags later, then have Magical Express deliver them. Otherwise, you should get them yourself.

    If you decide to get the bags yourself, remember NOT to put the yellow Magic Express tags on your luggage. If the yellow tags are there, the bags will be pulled out behind the scenes and won't even make it to the regular luggage carousel at the airport.
