    Can you check your bags into Magical Express early in the morning on your departure day even if your flight isn't until around 7pm. We'd like to be able to go to the parks and then make our way to the airport without having to worry about our bags.

    Hi Melissa!

         Yes, you can check in your luggage early to Magical Express on the day of your departure.  All you have to do is bring the luggage that wish to check in to the Resort Airline Check-In Desk at your Walt Disney World Resort.  The Resort Airline Check-In Desks typically open at 5:00 am or 6:00 am.  You can even check in to your flights and get your boarding passes for most airlines. You will need to have all the members of your party with you, your government issued ID's (Driver's Licences), your airline information (Airline, Confirmation Number, and Flight Number), your Resort room key, and the Magical Express letter that you received on your Resort room door the previous day (which has your Magical Express pick up time on it).  If you have carry on bags that you do not want to carry around the parks with you, then you can leave them with luggage services at your Resort and pick them up just before you are ready to board the Magical Express bus.  I do this exact thing all the time and it works great!

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
