    Hi! quick question about the ME. Our family is going to WDW in july from NY but we have a 1/2 hour stop in Washington dc, when reserving the ME we told them the flight from dc to MCO, but now we are wondering,should we of given them the one from ny also?

    Hi Lorraine,

    You did the right thing.  The Magical Express Service will want the actual flight # and airline that is coming into MCO (Orlando international Airport).  This will be the last flight before you come to Orlando and this is how they know when your suitcases will be arriving (based on the flight arrival time).  They will pick up your luggage (that you have pre-tagged with the yellow luggage tags they supplied you with) and the next time you see your luggage from when you have checked it in (in New York), will be at your Walt Disney World Resort (unless you would like to claim it yourselves and bring it directly to the Magical Express Coach so you do not have to wait approximately 3 hours to get your luggage delivered to you).  Some guests prefer having their luggage follow them directly to the resort and not wait this extra amount of time to have their things.  Either way you want to do it, just know that the flight information you gave was for the right flight segment.  Have a magical journey!

    Best wishes,
