    Travelling with a large group using the ME, could our luggage end up being separated? Same flight (from NY where my brother lives), same hotel, but we'll have 20+ pieces of luggage and I was wondering if some people might end up waiting a little longer?

    Hi Sophie - will you be using the option to have your luggage delivered directly to your room?  If so, when you land at the Orlando International Airport, you will head directly to the Magical Express Welcome Center to hop on a bus and head to your resort.  There is no need to pick up your luggage as it will be picked up for you and delivered to your resort room approximately 3 hours after you land.  This is definitely my preference!

    If you do not choose to have Disney pick up and deliver your luggage for you, do not put the yellow tags on your luggage and instead you will all need to go to baggage claim to retrieve your luggage.  You then would bring the luggage to the bus where the luggage will be loaded underneath the bus.

    With a party your size, there may be a slight delay for other guests already on the bus waiting to head to the resort but the cast members will load/unload the luggage as fast as possible.  If you are bringing your luggage on the bus, you may want to have a tip ready for your driver....sounds like he will be busy!

    It sounds like you have an awesome vacation planned!  Enjoy!  Diane
