    Only 4 wks to go :) What is the baggage limit when flying ATA? I know you can have one carry-on. How many bags are you allowed person. Only received one luggage tag per person. Thnks for all the great answers to so many questions!

    Hi Paula,

    Baggage requirements and restrictions vary by airline, but most major domestic US carriers have changed their baggage rules to allow for only one free bag per person and one carry-on (in addition to a small personal item such as a purse).  Some airlines even charge for one piece of checked luggage, with a higher fee for additional pieces.  The best thing to do is to contact your carrier either via phone or website to be sure what applies to your flight.  (I know that for my last trip that I booked several months ago, the airline considered me "grandfathered" under the old baggage rules based on when I bought my tickets and didn't charge me for additional bags.)

    Magical Express had sent two tags per person travelling in the past, but scaled back to one per person when the airlines changed their baggage restrictions.  However, if you decide to check more than one bag per person, the folks at Magical Express will gladly send you additional tags at no charge.  If you would like to order additional tags, please call Disney's Magical Express at 866-599-0951 to make your request.

    Have a wonderful trip!
