Default How late does Magical Express run?

Just wondering how late DME runs? We are getting into MCO late - probably about 11pm. Do the busses still run that late, or will we be on our own to get to our resort?

Yes the buses run that late you just have to go get your luggage yourself and take it down to the DME area.

faline will become famous soon enough

Magical Express runs around the clock. As noted, the luggage delivery service is not available that late into the evening so you do need to visit the luggage carousel, claim your bags and bring them with you on the bus.

I had the same arrival time a couple of years ago. There was no line for DME. It was eerily quiet, but it was open, there were still CMs there to direct you, busses, drivers, etc.

Picking up your bags at the carousel is not a big deal, many prefer it actually. You wno't have to wonder when your bags will show up in your room. If there is a baggage delay, you'll know right away.

If you have a DME reservation, they will give you a ride. Evebn if your flight lands hours and hours later than scheduled, they'll have you covered ... DME's computers are hooked into the airport's and airlines' computers, so they automatically know about any flight delays.
