    Hello, I am catching a 7 AM flight back home from Disney, will We still be able to check out our bags at the hotel early enough as I assume we will be catching the magical ride back to airport super early.

    Hi Lucille, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love to see guests like you return with more great questions! I have been in your shoes before with an early flight home on check-out day. Disney's Magical Express usually picks you up around 3 hours before your flight departure. For your 7 A.M. flight that would mean a pick up at or around 4 A.M. The earliest I have found myself on Disney's Magical Express was 3:30 A.M. It was tough to decide if I was going to wake up early or just stay awake all night! 

    Resort Airline Check-In is a great perk of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel when the timing works out. Unfortunately, you won't be able to use Resort Airline Check-In for your early flight. The service is open from 5 A.M. until 12 P.M. so it won't be open before you have to board Disney's Magical Express. Even if you decided to take your own transportation to the airport, "Guests must check-in no later than 3 hours prior to their scheduled flight departure." They need plenty of time to transport luggage to the airport and have it reach your plane. I know it's less convenient to take your luggage with you on Disney's Magical Express but since you will arrive at the airport so early hopefully you won't have long lines to check your luggage. 

    Lucille, thank you again for continuing to use the Disney Parks Moms Panel as a resource. We appreciate you! Please let us know if we can help you with any other questions.
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
