    Using Magical Express for the first time. We arrive at 9:10 pm. Staying at POP. Would you know how long it will take our bags to get to us at the resort. The website says up to 3 hours. That would be very late. What do they do when it's really late.

    Hi Stacey! Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel again!

    Disney's Magical Express is wonderful and the perfect way to start your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation! You are going to love it! The motorcoach is very comfortable and during your journey, you will see a video that is not only informative but also very entertaining.

    Yes - it is true that it may take up to 3 hours for your luggage to be delivered to your room. While the luggage delivery service is available for flights arriving between 5:00 am - 10:00 pm, when we arrive in the evening, we typically grab our bags and take them with us. After a long day of traveling, it's nice to have our luggage with us when we arrive at our Resort hotel. I would recommend that you do the same.

    It's a really simple process. When your flight arrives, head to Baggage Claim on Level 2, grab your luggage and proceed to Disney's Magical Express located on Side B, Level 1. Your luggage will be stowed on the same motorcoach that takes you to your Resort hotel. When you arrive at the Resort hotel, your luggage will be returned to you. If you decide to use this method for your luggage, make sure you DO NOT put the yellow Disney's Magical Express luggage tags on your bags when you check them. 

    If you would prefer to not pick up your bags at the airport, you may call bell services when you arrive at the Resort hotel and ask them to hold your bags until morning. Clearly, if you do this, you will want to have a carry-on with all of your essentials for the evening.

    When your vacation is concluding, you will receive information regarding your departure and Resort Airline Check-In.

    I hope this helps you in your planning. Have a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
