    We are leaving on Friday, June 3 and haven't received the luggage tags or anything else for the Magical Express service. I have read here that we will still be able to use the service, but am disappointed not to get the full effect.

    How many tags do you get? Mr. iwannabeminnie and I usually end up leaving with 5 bags and coming home with 7 or 8. One year Eeyore took a whole suitcase by himself (well, I HAD to have it). I am going to have to learn how to pack light. But I really NEED my red shoes for my red outfit, and my blue shoes for my blue outfit, and my pink shoes, and my green shoes, and.............
    They call me "Nana"

    I got 4 tags, but I am going alone. They may send more for families. The book they send you is all custom printed with your flight info and everything...it's really cool! And the ID tag they send you is SO pretty.

    Okay gang, stitch wanted me to let you know about Magical Express and her trip so far.......I guess they don't take into consideration when a flight gets delayed that people may want their luggage before morning. Poor April had a flight delay and did not get in until 12:40am. The bus got her to All Star Movies at around 1:40am so the process took about an hour. At 2:00am she checked at the front desk and was told that it may take up to 3 hours to get her luggage and they would leave a message on the phone when it came in.......she slept in her clothes. She was on her way to the front desk again at 6:26am (in the pouring rain) because there was no message light blinking when she woke up and feeling bad that she kept waking poor flutter to find one person on duty and a cranky crowd. A person in line suggested she check where the luggage was and through the window she's sees her suitcase. The baggage person said it came in at 3:00am and she was sssoooo sorry no one let April know.

    So if you are arriving in the morning or during the day and don't need your suitcases until evening, the process seems to work......but if you are arriving at night or have flight issues you may run into a problem. Maybe bringing a days worth of stuff in a carry on just in case would help.

    Now if it would just stop raining everything would be right in the world!

    Sorry to hear that she had such a rough time. I think we'll pass on this "feature".
    My luck with luggage hasnt been all that great. My suitcase ended up in Munich on my trip earlier this year, it was ok but I was in Dusseldorf And the newark,nj airport has done all sorts of lovely things with my suitcases.
    So I think that we wont ride the Magical Express

    How's April doing otherwise?

    Thanks Marie....She is tired but with great group of people so I'm sure she will be just fine. She said she would ride the bus again but would pick her bag up herself and take it on the bus with her. They played Finding Nemo on the bus ride and she was the second stop so it wasn't that bad. I always drive down but I would never use it or recommend the service to anyone either. I would sign up though to get the tags so I could scrapbook it with my pictures.

    Maybe some day we can start a forum for those of us who scrapbook. I may post a picture of a page I have done once I get some done. April also said there were some great new items to use for scrapbooking so I can't wait until she comes home with them.
