    Heading to WDW in October. Booked at Saratoga Springs, but on wait list at two other resorts. Planning on using airport shuttle. If we get switched to a resort on our wait list, how does that affect the shuttle and which resort our luggage gets sent to?

    Hi Robert,

    Good luck with your wait list.  I've been on the wait list for a Disney resort on a number of occasions and have been lucky enough to get my request every time. I wish for you the same luck!

    If you are switched to a different resort, just call Disney's Magical Express (DME) Service at (407) WDW-MAGIC and let them know of the change.  If the change happens before they send your luggage tags, they may have time to send out tags with the updated resort information on them.  If that is the case, you're all set.  Just put your luggage tags on your bags before you check them at your home airport and you will next see your bags in your Disney resort room. 

    If you are switched to a different resort after your Saratoga Springs luggage tags arrive, that's not a problem either.  Just call Disney's Magical Express Service to let them know of the change.  Don't put your DME tags on your bags when you check them at your home airport.  When you arrive at Orlando International Airport, go to baggage claim to collect your bags and then proceed to the DME check-in desk.  They'll see that you get on the correct bus and you will take your bags with you so you know that they'll arrive at the correct location too. 

    Wishing you a magical trip in October, Robert!  I'll keep my fingers crossed that your wait list request comes through.  Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any additional questions.
