    After hearing that my luggage handled by the Magical Express could take up to 7 hours to arrive, what happens in the later hours? They won't knock on our hotel room at midnight, will they? Also, is this not a problem leaving the resort?

    Most of the time, the Magical Express folks will deliver your luggage within about 3-4 hours. But sometimes difficulties occur and it could take much longer than this. You do not have to be present at your room when your bags are delivered. The procedure may vary slightly from hotel to hotel, but generally bell services will just take your bags to your room and leave them there for you.

    If your bags are very delayed or your flight is very delayed, yes your bags could be delivered to you at midnight. I was recently speaking with a park guest whose bags were delayed and then subsequently delivered to her room at 2:30 a.m. This is unusual, but it does happen. Also, because delays can happen, I always suggest that you bring one carry-on bag with the basic items you might need for the first 12 hours or so of your trip. This includes any medication your might need, as well as a change of shirt and undies, a toothbrush, and possibly your swimsuit.

    Hope you have a great trip.
