    When using DME are you able to retrieve your own checked luggage and bring it on the express to the hotel itself or are you required to use the luggage tags and have them deliver the bags for you?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sherri! There are a lot of benefits and perks when you stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and one of my favorites is that you get to use Disney's Magical Express. It's so simple and convenient to just board the coach when you get off the airplane and know that you're going to end up exactly where you need to go, and so are your bags!

    When you use Disney's Magical Express, you are not required to have your luggage picked up and delivered for you and you are welcome to grab your own bags at the luggage carousel. If you choose to take care of your luggage yourself, do not attach the yellow Disney's Magical Express tags you received to your bags. Your luggage will go on its own magical journey to your Resort Hotel and won't make it as far as the carousel if you attach those tags to your bags, so just leave them off if you plan to pick them up yourself. The bus driver will store your luggage for you when you get on the coach and you'll be able to get it when you arrive at your Resort Hotel. If you arrive before check-in time and want to head into the Theme Parks right away, drop your luggage off at Bell Services and they will store it safely for you while you're out having fun. You can pick it up from them when you come back, or you can call down from your room to have it delivered to you! If you do decide to use the baggage service that's included with Disney's Magical Express, all you need to do is attach the yellow tags to your bags. After you check it all in at your home airport, the next time you'll see your luggage is when it's delivered to your room later that day!

    I hope this answers your question, Sherri, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
