    We've heard it takes a couple hours to get your bags when you use DME. Want to head to the parks ASAP but will need things from luggage for the babies. We would be fine using DME to come home. Can you use Disney's Magical Express only one way?

    Hi Kaley!

         Yes, you can use Disney Magical Express for your departure only, but then you would have to find a way to get from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) to your Resort when you arrive.  My suggestion to you is to use Disney's Magical Express for both your arrival and departure, but do not use the automatic luggage transfer to your Resort room service.  You can do this by not putting the yellow Magical Express Luggage Tags on your luggage when you check your bags in at your departing airport.  When you get to the Orlando Airport, you will have to go to baggage claim and pick up your luggage.  Then you transport your luggage to Magical Express yourself and have them loaded underneath the Magical Express bus that you are taking to your Walt Disney World Resort.  When you get to your Resort, you get your bags from under the bus and you will have instant access to them.  I have done this many time before and it works great!

    I hope that your next trip to Walt Disney World is extra magical!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
