Can anyone share their experience with the Magical Express from the airport to hotel? Recommended? Skip it? I've read mixed reviews on other sites (it takes too long, or long time to get your luggage etc.) Wondering if anyone here has similar experiences (or good reviews to share?) We are getting excited - 38 more days to go!

I've been twice and have used the Magical Express both times. I love not having to go get my luggage! Both times the lines for the bus were VERY short and my hotels were the first stop to be dropped off at. I would recommend wearing what you want to wear at the parks on the plane because it can take a while for your luggage to be dropped of at your room. - chrissykins  825.5 #236 9:35AM
We have used it both times we have gone and it was great, especially now with kids. You don't have to get your luggage and haul it all over the airport to get to a taxi or anything. You just get off the plane and head straight to the bus. Both times we didn't have to wait for a bus and there was no line to check in. I would say do it because it's very easy and less stressful. They tell you your luggage arrives about 3 hours after you get there. We don't know how long ours took because as soon as we get to our hotel we head straight to the parks for awhile. We always just pack an extra bag for the plane ride with stuff we need right away and not worry about the rest of our luggage - brodysmommy  452.6 #514 9:59AM
Totally agree with the others! We have used it both times we went. Both times it wasn't a long wait for the bus. We also went straight to the parks since we room red eye both times and rooms weren't available bright and early in am when we would arrive. I wouldn't travel any other way. Especially with two kids now. One less stress and thing to worry about. - dvcfam4  113.2 #3449 11:53AM
I found it very convenient...you have to wait a bit but not horribly long. - disneygirl71  4.0 #603 12:17PM
Used it many times and love it. Take what u must have in a carry on since ur luggage will be a few hours behind you. - toogrumpy  142.4 #62 1:00PM
I thought it was great for a free service. - ally  509.0 #18 1:01PM
I loved it since I didn't have to bring 2 car seats with us, it was fast we didn't have a wait and kids felt like we had kinda made it to Disney. I will use it again and I was pregnant and have 2 young kids. - cheekymouse  34.9 #136 6:16PM
