    We are coming to OKW in just a few weeks! We want to use the airline check in at the hotel and now Northwest charges fees for checked luggage, even the first bag. Do we pay this at the desk or ahead of time? If ahead, how do we do it? Thx for your help!

    You'll be flying to the warm weather of Florida and the magic of WDW very soon!

    Information on the new baggage fees can be found here. However I waited next to a family recently that was trying to check luggage from Port Orleans Riverside. They were having all kinds of problems due to the new fees. I did hear the Resort Airline Check In attendant tell the guest that fees could not be paid at the resort desk.

    You must call ahead to the Baggage Airline Guest Services to pay your fee at 407-284-1231. Otherwise, you will have to check your luggage in at the airport.

    Due to our less than favorable experiences with Resort Airline Check In, on our most recent trip we checked in our luggage at the airport. RAC has always been painfully slow and has experienced computer glitches and other issues during our visits. Disney's Magical Express, however, has been very timely on the few occasions that we've used this service.
