    Our flight home is at 10:30pm. Is there a way to check out and have our bags held while we do the park? And will the magical express still run that late at night? Thanks!

    Hi Kelsey,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love extending my Walt Disney World Resort vacation as long as possible. I try to plan later flights on my departure day so I can spend extra moments in the parks. I'm excited you will have plenty of time on your departure day for more magic!

    First I want to make sure you know about the Resort Airline Check-In service. At Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, you can use Resort Airline Check-In to check your luggage to your final destination as long as you are flying with a participating airline. The Resort Airline Check-In desk is open from 5 A.M. to 12 P.M. The main requirement is you must check your luggage in no later than 3 hours before your flight departs. That won't be a problem for you! 

    Once you check your luggage in, you can swing by Bell Services and leave any carry-on bags with them. Give yourself a few extra minutes to retrieve your bags when you return for Disney's Magical Express. Fortunately, Disney's Magical Express runs 24 hours a day. Your pick-up time for Disney's Magical Express is generally around 3 hours before your flight departs for domestic flights. If you don't use Resort Airline Check-In, you can check all of your luggage with Bell Services and take it with you on Disney's Magical Express. In this case, you would check your luggage in with your airline at the airport. 

    Kelsey, thank you for visiting us with your question! I hope you will let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
