    How reliable is the luggage pick up and drop off service to/from the ariport? I am worried that we will not get our luggage to and from the airoort with the service can anyone give me advice on this feature?

    Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

    While nothing is guaranteed, I can tell you that our family has used the Magical Express numerous times. Each time, we are traveling with at least 7 people (lots of baggage). We've never had any trouble with Disney's Magical Express losing our luggage. The airlines themselves may be another story, but that is always a possibility when traveling.

    Please be aware that it can take up to 4 hours after you arrive in Orlando for your luggage to get to your room. This is because your bags won't be traveling on the Magical Express bus with you (it is picked up separately). Due to this, I always recommend that you bring your bathing suits and a change of clothes in a carry-on bag so you can enjoy the pool upon arrival if you'd like.

    Disney is well known for it's high level of service and this holds true with the Magical Express as well. As long as you put the yellow Magical Express tags on your bags that you will receive in the mail prior to your trip, you'll be all set. In addition, for the return trip home, be sure to bring your baggage to the Bell Services station at least 4 hours prior to your flights departure time.

    Hope this helps and that you enjoy your vacation!
