    We are taking the Disney bus to our hotel. They are supposed to pick up our luggage for us and deliver it to our hotel. Our flight doesn't land in Orlando until 7:45p on Saturday. What time can we expect our luggage to arrive at our room? I'm nervous.

    Hi Crystal! The Magical Express service is such a great perk of staying at a Disney resort.  I can be frugal, so I love that Disney transports me from the airport to my resort hotel for free! Click here to see an answer where I discussed the pros and cons of the Magical Express service. 

    When you use the Magical Express, your luggage is supposed to be delivered to your hotel room within three hours of your arrival. My family usually takes an early flight and we head to the parks for the day, so it doesn't bother us that our bags aren't delivered until several hours later. To be honest, every time I've used the Magical Express it's been more than three hours before I saw my luggage. Since you're not arriving in Orlando until almost 8 p.m., that means it may be 11 p.m., or later, before your bags arrive at your resort room. If you have a big evening planned, that may not bother you. However, if you'll want to head to bed early, I would recommend that you not use the Magical Express luggage tags, and retrieve your luggage from the baggage claim yourself. Just bring it with you to the Magical Express, and you'll be able to store it under the motorcoach and take it off with you when you arrive at your resort. 

    Hope you have a wonderful vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions!
