    For M.E., our flight home is at 6:15am. Heard airline check-in counter at resort is only open 5am-1pm. If you can only check in no more than 12 hours ahead and no less than 3 hours before departure, do we carry our bags with us/print boarding pass at MCO?

    Hi Susan!

          With your fight home being at 6:15 am, your Magical Express Resort pick up time will be 3 hours before your departure flight time (which will be around 3:15 am) so you are right that the Resort Airline Check In will not be open until 5:00 am.  You can bring your luggage to the Magical Express Bus and they will place it underneath the bus.  When the Magical Express Bus gets to the Orlando International Airport, you will take your bags after they unload them from under the Magical Express Bus to your airline ticket counter and check them in.  At your airline ticket counter, you can get your airline boarding passes.  I have done this exact thing multiple times over the last few years and it works great as long as you remember to retrieve your bags from under the Magical Express Bus when you get to the airport.

    I hope that your next trip to Walt Disney World is full of magical memories!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
