    HI! We are going to WDW for the first time March 4-11, but we are not booking our trip until 2 weeks before, my question is will we still be able to use the luggage service, and how will we use it with out the luggage tags? Thank you so much!

    Hi Ashley!
    When you book your Walt Disney World vacation you will have the option of using the Magical Express service, this needs to be done at least 10 days before your arrival date so they will have time to send tags for your luggage.  Check your luggage with the tags attached at your departure airport and you will see them again in your Disney Resort room.
    If you are not going to be able to book in enough time for the tags to be sent to you, you will have to check them as normal and pick them up at once you reach Orlando International.  Give Disney's Magical Express a call at (866)599-0951 to confirm your reservation for the Magical Express, make sure to have your flight number and reservation number handy.  Once you have received your bags, proceed to the check in desk located on level 1 B side.  You will then be directed which line to enter according to which resort you are staying.  You will have to wait with your luggage, but it will be stowed underneath the bus during your transportation to Walt Disney World.
    Once you arrive at your resort, it may take awhile to receive your bags so make sure you have your essentials in a carry on bag.  If you are arriving with your luggage,  it can be stored for you at Bell Services while you wait for your room to be ready,  just call Bell Services to have your luggage delivered or retrieve it yourself, just make sure to keep your ticket and id handy.  
    If you will be arriving at an airport other than Orlando International or other form of transportation, you can also have your luggage stored once you arrive at your Disney Resort.  I hope this helps and please let us know if you have any more questions!  Just a few more winks until your magical vacation!

    Enjoy your "Disney Time!"
