    Hi! Are we able to continue to use the Animal Kingdom Lodge after our check out time of 11am the same day? if it's not raining, etc, to continue using the pool? Just trying to plan travel. Thanks very much!

    Hi Sarah,
    I'm so excited to hear you are getting ready to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth! You have chosen one of the most beautiful Disney Resort hotels to stay in! Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge offers a spectacular view of animals in the savanna, delectable food, the most amazing African-themed decorations throughout the resort, etc. You will fall in love with its atmosphere the second you walk into this incredible resort!
    The answer to your question is a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y! Several times, my family has checked out at around 11:00 a.m., left our luggage with Bell Services and continued to enjoy our Disney resort facilities (you will be amazed at the number of free activities to do at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge -be sure to ask at check-in) until it is time to go. All you need to do is drop off your bags with a Bell Services Cast Member. They will give you a small card with your name on it, the number of bags you have dropped off and a distinct number so you can claim your belongings as you get ready to catch Disney's Magical Express to the airport or whatever other transportation method you have arranged. If you will be using this complimentary motor coach service back to Orlando's International Airport be sure to have your notice printed to hand over to the driver. If you don't receive a notice the day before check-out, be sure to let the lobby know so they can help you secure a spot on Disney's Magical Express. 
    Sarah, I hope to see you here again on the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions as you plan your perfect vacation. We'll be hEAR waiting for you!

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
