    Hi Yelismay!

    You will love using Disney's Magical Express for your transportation between Orlando International Airport and your Disney Resort hotel because it makes your travel so easy! This is one of my favorite benefits of staying at the Disney Resort hotels because my family and I can relax on comfortable motorcoaches without having to worry about navigation, rental cars or parking. Plus, my kids love to watch the Disney videos that play on the bus during the trip!

    Your evening flight will give you a full day to enjoy the magic of the theme parks and Disney Springs before your flight home. You can check your bags with Bell Services at your Disney Resort hotel after you check out. You can either bring your bags to Bell Services, which is located near your hotel's front desk, or you can call them from your room and they can retrieve them right from your room. Once your bags are checked, you are free to explore Walt Disney World Resort until it's time for you to board Disney's Magical Express to head to the airport. I recommend that you plan on arriving at Bell Services to retrieve your bags 15-20 minutes in advance of your Disney's Magical Express departure time to ensure you have plenty of time before your bus leaves to collect your belongings.

    If you are flying one of the participating airlines, you are welcome to take advantage of Resort Airline Check-In to make your return trip home as easy as possible. This complimentary service will allow you to check in to your flight, check your luggage, and pay any required baggage fees right from your Disney Resort hotel. I love using this service because I'm able to take care of all of my travel needs in advance, allowing me to bypass the airline ticket counter when I arrive at the airport! Resort Airline Check-In is open daily from 5:00 a.m. until noon, so you can use this service in the morning once you check out of your hotel and you will be all set for your flight in the evening. If you have any larger carry-on bags that you don't want to bring with you into the theme parks, you can still check those will Bell Services so you can be free to enjoy your day!

    Let us know if we can help you with additional questions as your trip continues to approach. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
