    We are staying at POFQ. Flight is arriving at midnight. Disney is providing transport hotel. They sent us luggage tags bags can be sent to hotel I’ve heard that this is for flights arriving before 10pm? If so can we just carry our bags on the transport bus

    Hi Nicole! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm so glad you are being so thorough with your planning. You have asked some very important questions with regards to your arrival at both Orlando International Airport and Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter.

    To begin, let's start with those fabulous bright yellow luggage tags. Save those as a fun souvenir as you will not want to put them on your luggage. You are correct. Because your flight will arrive after 10:00 PM, you will need to claim your checked bags and then make your way to Disney’s Magical Express (located in the Ground Transportation Area in Terminal B, Level 1). From there, the friendly Cast Members will direct you to your motorcoach. Your luggage will be stowed on your motorcoach as you are whisked away on Disney's Magical Express. Your stowed items will be returned to you once you arrive at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter.

    As you are packing your items, be sure to keep your MagicBands readily available as they will be needed when you check-in at Disney's Magical Express.

    Oh my goodness! I'm so excited for you! I love Disney's Magical Express! I have arrived in Orlando at a similar time to your flight and I was so thankful for the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride to my Resort Hotel. Plus, it's the perfect way to start your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your magical vacation!
