    My 4yr son and I will arrive at airport at 2:30 on 11/9/11. Have reserved ME to AKL for 4 day stay. Question - Would it be better to just take taxi so we don't have to wait? How difficult is it to get our own luggage from baggage claim and then get taxi?

    Hi Denise!

    Unless you are really in a hurry, I would recommend just waiting for Disney's Magical Express.  It a lot easier.  If you want your luggage right away, you can pick up your own luggage in the baggage claim area and bring them with you to Disney's Magical Express Check-in.  Just be sure not to put the Magical Express luggage tag on your bags if you want to get them yourself.  Then your bags will travel on the same bus as you so they will be available when you check-in at your hotel.

    If you decide to take a taxi, you should plan on it taking about 30 minutes to get form the airport to Walt Disney World.

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
