    We are coming to Disney in April and have planned everything for our trip except our last day. Our flight leaves at 8:45 pm to Toronto. How do I secure the latest check out time possible? What time will the Magical Express pick us up? Thanks so much!

    Hi Lori!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I fully understand how you are trying to plan your last day at Walt Disney World Resort.  I am from the UK, and my flights home are always later in the day.  When you check-in at your Disney Resort hotel, you can request a late check-out time.  This will never be later than 1.00pm (usual check-out time is 11.00am), and is always subject to availability.  This has to be requested at the Front Desk, and is not an option if you use online check-in.  Just stop by the Front Desk anytime, but I would recommend asking as early as possible during your vacation.  Even though they can only offer you a maximum of 2 extra hours, I find that really helps.  If you wanted a much later check-out time, this is also subject to availability and would incur costs equal to an extra night's stay.  Once you have checked-out of your room, you can leave all your luggage with Bell Services, who will store everything in a secure, air-conditioned room until you are ready to leave for the airport.

    You can then spend the rest of your last day as you please - you could visit a theme park, take a stroll around Disney Springs for some last minute shopping and something to eat, or even just relax by your hotel's pool.  Towels are provided poolside, if you need them.

    The day before you leave, Disney's Magical Express will deliver a notification to your hotel room, advising you of the time of your motor coach's departure.  For International flights, you would usually be picked up around 4 hours prior to your flight time.  For Domestic flights this would be around 3 hours before your flight.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
