Luggage and

Hello all,

My husband and I are flying into MCO in September for our Disney trip, and are scheduled to arrive at the airport around 9pm. We've heard about others getting their bags very late using the magical express bus during the day, and were wondering what we'll experience on such a late flight. We would love to hear your stories of the DME for late check-ins!

They advertise that you should receive your luggage 3-4 hours after you check in at the resort. That would have you getting your luggage around 1-2 AM. If our flight lands after 7PM we get our own luggage.

You will get your luggage late. I would get my own luggage. Also be aware that if you are delayed for any reason, Disney will not pick up luggage for anyone that lands after 10:00 p.m.

We usually get to MCO in the morning/early afternoon, and the last 3 trips have received our luggage within an hour of check-in (but from hearing friends' stories I know that that's unusually lucky!)

Has anyone used the magical express bus to transport their luggage when they've had a later flight? I'd love to hear from someone who took the risk.

Three times we've landed around 9PM and received our luggage between 1:30 and 2:00AM all 3 times. Hence our new rule of arriving after 7PM we get it ourselves.

We had a bad experience once with the luggage not arriving until 2:00am, and then they didn't have all the pieces, so it took even longer. We always arrive in the evening, and we grab our own bags, just easier that way.

Thank you all for the input! Getting our luggage is looking like a great option

We're arriving around lunch time and we want to collect our own belongings. I can't imagine not having our stuff right away. We might let Disney do it if we didn't have DD with us, but we will need certain things right away.
