    If check out Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter is 11:00 am and our flight is not until that night are we able to stay onsite and use the pool and ask them to hold our luggage?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kimberlee!

    What an excellent resort choice you've made in Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. It's southern charm and hospitality at its finest. In addition, you also have access to the amenities of French Quarter's sister resort, Port Orleans -  Riverside, to enjoy. 

    I prefer having late flights on departure day, too. I want to squeeze in every once of magic that I can, and pool time is the perfect way to do that. Once you've left your room by the 11:00am checkout time, you may store your luggage with Bell Services, located in the lobby of your resort hotel, and then head to the pool with your day bag. You are free to use the resort amenities as you'd like, even on departure day. In fact, your MagicBand will work that day until midnight if you choose to still use it for charging. Your room is the only thing you won't have access to. 

    Keep in mind when planning your pool time and meals for your departure day, if you're utilizing Disney's Magical Express Bus Service for your return to Orlando International Airport, your pick-up time will be three hours prior to your flight departure time. 

    I hope this is helpful in your planning, Kimberlee :)
