    When using the Magical Express to the All Star Music Resort, do we have to leave our luggage for the staff to take to our hotel? We were told it is a 3 hour wait for our bags to arrive to our hotel room. Can we use Mag. Exp. and take our own luggage?

    Hi Sherrie,

    While our family loves the ease and convenience of Disney's Magical Express, the one drawback is the wait for your luggage. You heard correctly, it can take two to three hours before your bags arrive from Orlando International airport to your Disney resort. For us, the wait does not matter as we often arrive early in the morning and usually have to wait for our resort room to be ready anyway. We typically take a carry on bag with any necessities or changes of clothes we may need before receiving our luggage. If you do not like this option, and want your bags with you immediately, you are welcome to grab your own luggage once you land and carry it with you on the Magical Express shuttle.

    Remember, DO NOT tag your luggage with the yellow Magical Express tags if you are going to grab your own bags as the tagged bags get pulled directly off the airplane and never make it to the baggage carousel. Simply head down to baggage claim and pick up your suitcases, then head to the Magical Express counter. Your shuttle driver will store your bags under the bus and return them once you arrive at your Disney resort.

    Have a great time!
