    We have an early res at MCO for our return trip so we will be staying the night at the airport hotel. Can we use DME? We want to stay at the parks as late as possible and then take DME. How do we schedule DME when our flight is the next day? Thanks!!

    Hi, Alyson!  In my experience, it is possible to take Disney's Magical Express a day before your flight.  On a trip not too long ago, my husband was booked on Magical Express with us, but due to a change in his schedule, he was actually going to try to get on a standby flight the day before.  He technically had no flight scheduled except the one the next morning.

    We contacted the front desk at our resort, and they were able to put us in touch with someone who changed his Magical Express trip to the evening before our flight.  It was really easy, and they were very accommodating.

    What I will caution you, however, is if you planned to use the resort airline check in service, that won't be available for you the night before.  Airline check in can only be done 3 to 12 hours prior to your flight, and the latest you can check in is at 2 PM the day before.  

    Have an awesome time at Walt Disney World!
