    We are flying home after our cruise from Orlando back home to Nashville on Southwest Airlines. Does Disney cruise do the “check in” for our flight like the Disney Parks do?

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amber!

    You can fly!  You can fly!  You can fly!  Whether by plane or a magic carpet, as long as it involves a Disney cruise in between, no extra pixie dust is necessary.  I am excited to hEAR that you will be sailing with Captain Hook and Tinkerbell soon!

    Although the thought of flying home is always the worst part of the trip, it is nice that Disney Cruise Line offers Onboard Airline Check-In service to make that journey home a little easier to navigate.  Tick-Tock the Crocodile always seems to be chasing me on debarkation morning as we race to get one last breakfast in.  It is so helpful to already have our bags checked in on our flight and our boarding passes in hand using this service!

    To use the airline check in service, there are specific eligibility guidelines you must meet.  You must be using Disney Cruise Line ground transportation back to the Orlando International Airport to board a flight that leaves at 11:25 AM or later on the day you debark in Port Canaveral.  Each piece of luggage cannot weigh more than fifty pounds and your flight must be with a participating airline.  Participating airlines are subject to change, but currently include domestic Delta, American Airlines, JetBlue, Alaska Airlines or United Airlines flights.

    Hightail it back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions about your magical getaway!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
