    On the day we check out our flight wont leave until 10:00 pm. Can we leave our bags at the AKL and go to epcot and then retrieve our bags when the magical express picks us up?

    Hi, Kevin! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I think there is no such thing as too much magic when on vacation, so I love that you have booked a late flight home to get one more Disney day with your family.

    Check-out at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is at 11:00 a.m. Your Resort does provide the Resort Airline Check-In service. If your airline is one of the listed participating airlines, you can check-in for your flight that morning at the Resort. This service can transport your luggage to Orlando International Airport (MCO) for you. If you have any carry-on luggage, Bell Services at your Resort will hold these items for you while you are enjoying your day at Epcot. You will be given a claim ticket to present when you come back to Bell Services. While I am sure it will be hard to pull yourself away from all of the fun at Epcot, be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get back to your Resort and claim your carry-on items before Magical Express picks you up. Your pick-up time should be three hours in advance of your flight home.

    I hope you have a great day, Kevin, and please stop by again if you have any additional questions.
