    We are from Arizona, and our traveling to WDW in October for the first time ever! Our return flight is not until late at night, but our resort check out is 11AM. I was wondering if the resorts allow you to stay on property after check out?

    Hi Samantha, 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to be planning your very first Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    I have great news! You are welcome to enjoy all of the resort amenities until midnight on the day that you check-out. I highly recommend that you utilize the Resort Airline Check-In Service to send your luggage to the airport ahead of you. This is a great service which my family uses on nearly every trip. You must be traveling on one of the participating airlines to use this service. These include Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines (U.S. Domestic Flights Only), JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines. Be sure to keep your swim suits, a change of clothes, your plane tickets, photo identification, and other important items at the resort with you. You'll then be free to enjoy the swimming pool, restaurants, or other amenities until it is time to depart to the airport without having to worry about your luggage. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
