    Using magical express at the end of this summer, how long after we arrive at the hotel, do our bags arrive. We should get to the hotel around the time of check in, but if we are early is there a place we can put our carryon bags so we can head to the park?

    There is a fair amount of variability in this, but when using Magical Express, your checked luggage will usually make it to your hotel within about 3 hours after you land. If there is anything that you absolutely need to have with you in 4 to 5 hour window, then you should bring it with you in a carry-on bag. (I'm very much a "just in case" girl myself.)

    If your room is not ready when you check in, you are welcome to leave your bags with the Bell Services desk at your hotel. They will tag the bags, give you a receipt, and then store them in a secure area. When you return from the parks, just give the Bell desk your receipt and they will return your bags to you.

    Enjoy your stay at Walt Disney World!
