    Do the Disney World Resorts expect to reinstate luggage/airline check in?

    Hi Patrick!

    Another great question! With four kids in our family, I always loved the Resort Airline Check-in Service. It made getting to the airport on departure day much easier while wrangling my younger ones. Disney would handle the luggage and all I had to do was head to the airport!

    The wording from Disney states that the service is “no longer available,” rather than “paused.” This leads me to believe that the service is probably not slated to return. I could channel Madam Leota of The Haunted Mansion, ask Tinker Bell for some extra pixie dust, or even send a personal message to Mickey himself, but with so many changes going on right now, at this point this would still just be a guess on my part. With Disney’s Magical Express planning to cease operation at the end of 2021, I think it is even more likely that Resort Airline Check-in will not return.

    My large family may look Goofy lugging all their baggage through the airport now, but at least I can look cute as a Daisy as I always pack my stuff and some extra patience (did I mention the four kids?) in my Minnie Mouse suitcase!

    I do recommend subscribing to the Disney Parks Blog, as well as following it and Walt Disney World on social media sites to stay up-to-date with the latest reopening announcements. If the service were to return, or if something similar was offered in the future, these sites are likely the first ones to report such a change.

    Have a Magical Day!
