    For various reasons, we have to decided to grab our luggage at the airport and bring it with us on the Magical Express bus for our October trip.

    We will have 3 pieces of luggage and two small carry on bags.

    First, can we hold our carry on? They aren't big.

    Second, you don't tip until after you get off the bus, correct?

    And I've read about being told to stay on the bus while they get your luggage or something along those lines? Do we wait until driver tells us to get off the bus?

    Never used DME before! :hyper:

    thanks!

    The space between the seats in the Magical Express is REALLY small. My 6'2" can barely fit...

    But I think (?) there is space near the room so you can store your carry-on. You don't have to hold it on you but you're free to do it.

    Yes, you tip them when they drop you off. (Gratuity is accepted and in my opinion, the drivers are nice enough to get tipped at the end of the bus ride...)

    p.s.: Magical Express is awesome. The vacation in WDW starts right away. We did not stay in a Disney Resort during our last trip and we really missed it.

    Yes you can keep smaller bags with you on the bus.

    When you get to the resort the driver will announce which resort it is , he will exit and wait at door to help people get off. Then he gets out luggage from underneath.

    I tip when I get off if no luggage or give to driver when I get luggage.

    There may be 3 stops for resorts but he will clearly say which one it is when stopping, it's always nice to get a peek of some other resorts :)

    Lastly some airlines baggage is on B side of MCO and Magical Espress is on A.

    If that's the case get your luggage. Then go to elevator to floor 3. Get off and go across to A side. Then take elevator to first floor. Take a left off elevator and head to end and clearly see/find ME lines.
