    My plane lands at 5:45 in the evening; i’m anticipating checking into the resort (all star movies) at 7:45. How late do they deliver the checked luggage? I’m worried that it will be delivered after midnight, when my daughter and I are both in bed?

    Hello there, Erin!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m glad you stopped by with your question. 

    Aladdin has Magic Carpet, Cinderella has a carriage, and Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort have a magical motorcoach! One of the many benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is the ease and convenience of Disney’s Magical Express magically whisking you away from the airport to your Resort hotel! Once aboard the motorcoach, my family and I love to sit back and relax before we begin our adventure! The complimentary checked luggage delivery to our Resort hotel room makes traveling so very easy, because if you ask any of my family members, they will tell you I am an over-packer! 

    Disney’s Magical Express Transportation is allotted a four hour window from landing until delivery of luggage. If you land at 5:45 p.m., you should receive your luggage before the clock strikes midnight. I like to keep a carry on bag with my essentials for times like this. In my carry on bag, I pack our MagicBands, medications, bathing suits, my wallet, a change of clothes including pajamas, chargers, and personal hygiene essentials just in case I’m ready to shower and get into bed! During the times my flight will end up coming in later and I need all my items as soon as I land, I opt out of the luggage delivery and pick up my luggage. I just roll it over to Disney’s Magical Express and they store it in the motorcoach until we arrive at our Resort hotel!

    Erin, I hope you and your daughter have the most magical vacation!
