    Hi....trying to decide whether to use our "Magic Express" luggage tags or whether to retrieve our luggage from the baggage claim area ourselves? Is it a reliable service? Will our bags arrive at our hotel?

    Hi Barbara! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Now that your countdown is in the two-week range, I bet you are busy with your last-minute preparations. It's almost time to start packing for your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. Hooray!

    While I can't guarantee that your bags will make it because lost luggage does happen with air travel, I can speak from my own experience and say that of the many, many times I have flown into Orlando International Airport and used Disney's Magical Express, my luggage has always been safely delivered to my Disney Resort hotel room in a timely manner with no issues whatsoever! I have used the special luggage tags and I have even booked last-minute trips and just given the Cast Members my baggage claim number with no problems in either scenario.

    Because of my own wonderful experience, I highly recommend Disney's Magical Express luggage delivery service for those with flights arriving between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. It is always SO nice to not have to wait around for my luggage and to have it auto-magically show up in my room later that day. However, should you decide to claim your luggage for yourself, your bus driver will be happy to assist you in storing your luggage under the bus during your ride to your Disney Resort hotel, then retrieve it for you when you arrive at your destination. I always like to tip the bus driver for his assistance with my carry-on luggage at the end of my journey.

    Enjoy every magical moment of your vacation, Barbara! Please let us know if you have any other questions!
