    Check-out is at 11, but our flight home isn't till 5 so we decided to book a brunch at Chef Mickey's and maybe do a little shopping at Disney Springs before we go. Could we take the Magic Express to the airport from a different resort?

    Hi Kyle,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You have just described my ideal departure day! I like to have a later flight on our departure day since we're usually tired from having an amazing time at the Most Magical Place on Earth. We sleep in a bit then try to have a nice breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Occasionally, we will visit a theme park before we leave, but usually we head to Disney Springs to pick up some last-minute souvenirs.

    I spoke to a Cast Member with Disney's Magical Express. It is sometimes possible to take Disney's Magical Express from a different Walt Disney World Resort Hotel than where you stayed but it is not guaranteed. It truly depends on how many people are departing from your original Resort Hotel and the one from which you hope to depart. The Cast Member recommended that you ask the Lobby Concierge at your Resort Hotel to check with Disney's Magical Express at least a day or two before you check out. 

    I hope you're planning to take advantage of Resort Airline Check-In. Our family is almost comical when we try to repack our luggage for the trip home. It always seems like our clothing has somehow multiplied plus we have souvenirs to add. I love being able to take our luggage to Resort Airline Check-In and check our bags there. It's a relief to know they will be waiting for us at our home airport. You can visit Resort Airline Check-In from 5 A.M. to 12 P.M., and you must check your bags three hours prior to your flight departure time. After checking our bags, we stop by Bell Services to drop off our carry-on bags. If you do arrange to depart from a different resort, you can leave your carry-on bags with Bell Services there while you enjoy your final day. 

    Kyle, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you will let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions before your visit. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
